Possible to program 6002A

I may be beating a dead horse, but I'm wondering if it is possible to program an ancient 6002A power supply.  All I really want to do is to be able to set the voltage to 0 V or 48 V. So, I don't need to "program" it as much as I need to be able to turn it on/off remotely.

I have an 82357A USB to HPIB adapter and Agilent I/O suite 16.0. I would like to be able to just use the "Send commands to this instrument" from the "Agilent Connection Expert" gui. I do not see how to do that.

The 6002 manual talks about sending commands from a calculator, the commands are in the form of
CMD "?U%", "2960"
cmd 7, "?U%", "2960"
       ? is the unlisten command
       U is the calculator talk address
       % is the 6002 listen address
       2999 is the supply's 2nd range (960)(.05V)= 48V output
