Configure PI AF server

We recently placed a new server in a office network for the use of PI AF and PI Vision. The PI data archive server is placed behind a firewall, inside our automation network and we don't want people from the office network to connect directly to our Pi data archive server.


How can we configure the AF-server so that users of PI Datalink in excel connect to the AF-server, and can find information about all the tags available on the PI Data Archive server as well as events stored on the AF-server?


Rebuilding the entire plant hierarchy in AF is not the desired option.


the connection between the AF-server and the data archive server is up and running.

see the appendix for a schematic view of the network.


Kind regards,
