The deploy file (projectname.dpj) is downloaded by clients. The deploy file describes the IP addresses for your SCADA nodes. It is read by clients using HTTP (hyper text transfer protocol). The deploy file is on the Project Node. Possible Causes of this are:
i. Web Server not running on Project Node
ii. Web Service not installed on Project Node
iii. Improper Security on Project Node
iv. Logon Security prevents clients from reading deploy file
v. Directory or Folder security prevent WebAccess software from creating deploy file
Try accessing the Deploy File from your current location:
In Internet Explorer 6.0 (or any web browser), enter in the address bar:
http://ip_adddress of your project node/broadweb/projectname.dpj
or look in drive:\WebAccess\Client for a file with the *.dpj extension named after your project (e.g. C:\WebAccess\Client\yourprojectname.dpj).
For example, to test if WebAccess Live Demo deploy file is available type:
This file should also exist at drive:\WebAccess\Client on the Client PC.
If you get an error message, “ the folder can not be accessed”, then the Web Server service is not running on the project node or WebAccess is not installed.
If you get the message "Access Denied" then the security settings are set improperly on the Project Node for either the Web service or the wwwroot folders (subdirectories).
If you get the message "File not Found" then the project was not downloaded or security settings are set improperly on the Project Node for either the Web service or the wwwroot folders (subdirectories).
A properly formed Deploy file should resemble the following:
