34970A Connection Issues

Hi all,

I am attempting to connect a 34970A unit to one of several laptops via the RS-232 output and an RS-232 to USB converter (Keyspan USA-19HS).  Agilent Connection Expert seems to know of the existence of the instrument, but when attempting to identify it, returns either one of two errors: "The instrument address check failed" or "The instrument did not return an IDN string [or something like that]."  This happens on any laptop we try, and also with a different RS-232 to USB converter ( ... 047&sr=8-3)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
