I'm trying to use AFSDK to connect to a PI Server, and I'm trying to troubleshoot why it is failing.


I've added a PISystem with the following two commands:


Dim newSys As PISystem = myPISystems.Add("piserver")


newSys.ConnectionInfo.Host = "piserver"


newSys.Connect() shows the following error:


Could not connect to net.tcp://piserver:5457/AFServer/Service. The connection attempt lasted for a time span of 00:00:01.0553760. TCP error code 10061: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it xx.xx.xx.xx:5457.


Is this connection trying to connect to a PI Server or AF Server Service?  is an AF Server service required for this PI Server connection?
