The "hard part" is done by VISA.  For either th E2050 or the E5810A, use the
Agilent I/O configuration to set the converter up as a VISA LAN Client.
This
will make the converter look like a GPIB card to anything that does I/O,
including
VEE.  Any version of VEE (any version of anything) that was able to use an
Agilent
GPIB card before, will be able to use the converter with the same calls as a
GPIB card.  There are help file web pages in the converter that tell you how
to
do this.  (I wrote them myself. 

So, yes, VEE 5 can use the converter - as long as your Agilent VISA is up to
date.
