34970A Data retrieval through RS232

Hi, all

I am trying to connect 34970A to a laptop with RS-232. Two methods

1. RS232 to USB converter
As shown in another post, Agilent connection expert cannot identify the instrument, with the error “The instrument did not return an IDN string”.

2. RS232 to TCP/IP converter
Similar error, no IDN response.

So is it possible to use BenchLink Data Logger to retrival data in my case? 

If writing own program is the only solution, how to “fetch” data during scanning? (I can save data at the end of scanning, but "fetch" during scanning will stuck there)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
