vrf Tek Logic Analysers over LAN

The last time I did anything with "Tek VISA" (about 6 years ago) it was a subset of NI VISA.
I think it also used VXI-11 protocol (available in Agilent VISA).
If I were on your project team, my first attempt would be to configure Agilent VISA with a TCPIP LAN Client with the protocol VXI-11 selected (rather than "automatically detected" because the Tek VISA might not take too kindly to the detection method).
If that didn't work, I'd try NI-VISA (on a computer other than the test system).  If that works, then I'd put NI-VISA side-by-side with Agilent VISA on the test system so that they could both work.
