Hi Lambert,

I do not know if you have configured your workstation as a Lan Client. In
my WS (HP-UX 10.20, WS B180L, HP-VEE 5.0), I had to execute the following
command line:


After doing that you should be able to command an equipment with HPIB
interface connected through the LAN/HPIB gateway, but you must define this
equipment in the I/O instrument manager and specify "gateway_hostname" (as
defined in your "/etc/hosts" file) in the "gateway" option. I do not know
if there is a way to talk directly to the LAN/HPIB gateway (perhaps by
means of sockets), but I think you are more interested for controlling the
IEEE equipment.
