Connect Ignition to Siemens IPC OPC Server

Hello All,
I am wondering if anyone has used the built in Siemens OPC server to connect to Ignition. I am using WinCC Flexible Advanced 2008 SP5 and Ignition 8.0.17. I am wondering if I use the OPC server functionality that's built-in to WinCC Flexible if I would be able to communicate with Ignition? I am trying to pull HMI tags into Ignition without having to write them to the PLC first.

A bunch of people tried, you can look it up in the search.
