Buffering on OPC interface causing issues

I'm configuring an OPC interface (I've got 6 others so was pretty sure I could get it to work), but I've been having difficulties with getting the buffering service to work and stay connected to the PI server. In the piclient.ini I have the following text:

[APIBUFFER]
BUFFERING=1
[PIBUFSS]
BUFFERING=1
[BUFFEREDSERVERLIST]
BUFSERV1=10.30.8.24

Is this correct? I though that you either had API or the buffer server subsystem running not both. Have I got a corrupted piclient.ini file?

 

Also how do I test that buffering is working? Is it just a case of disconnecting the connection to the PI server (physical disconnect using the network lead!), then reconnecting sometime later to see if the data has changed correctly?

 

All help gratefully received!
