Configuration Notes:
There are a variety of ways in which a client without a client project can access the server project:

  1. WinCC Explorer

1. WinCC Explorer

3 Login with the user who is authorized to operate a client. This user must have been created in the server project beforehand. He requires "1000 Activate remote" or "1001 Configure remote" authorization.

4 The server project opens locally on your client computer.

2. WinCC projects
 

No. Procedure

Right-click the required server and select "Wire".
