vrf Using National GPIB with VEE via IO libraries remote

Question asked by michael.asbery on Nov 26, 2001
Joe,

Sorry to let you down.  Last I talked to Agilent, the remote gateway
feature is only supported if you use an Agilent(HP) GPIB card.  Went round
and round this summer trying to get it to work with a NI card, and found
this out.

Please let me know if this is wrong.  I have many NI cards and would like
to use them as remote gateways and not have to buy yet another interface card.
