Automatic measurement Matlab -> VSA 89601B (GPIB)

Hi,
Currently, I've a VSA 89601B + CXA (spectrum analyzer) who are lent for evaluation.
I'm using these tools for custom OFDM.
I'm trying two versions of VSA. One embeded in CXA and one on the master computer (who controls all instruments).

After a good demodulation, I would like evaluate the remote control for automatic measurement.

For the automatic measurement, it seems that I've to use the VSA on master computer.
In my Lab, all automatics measurements uses a GPIB connection and Matlab (with tmtools box).
I've found in the VSA's help the SCPI commands, so I think that I can use these commands to control the VSA but I've not found examples.

We've evaluated the similar tool in R&S and we could command the tool (K96) with matlab by using a VISA object. Here, with Agilent, it doesn't work. I tried also a GPIB and tcpip object.

The CXA is connected via GPIB.

I hope that my explanations are clear, let me know if not).

Thanks in advance for you helps and suggestions.
