For an application I have a generator (E8257) on a remote location. This generator must generate a couple of discrete frequencies when triggered. 

To trigger the generator I use a E5818A Trigger Box. With the use of the "Interactive LXI" program I can generate a manual trigger on TTL1 of the E5818A Trigger Box. Command to the E5818A are send via LAN.

What VISA commands I have to send to the E5818A trigger Box to configure it for generating a trigger via LAN on TTL1? And what VISA command does generate the trigger on TTL1? The E5818A manual does not provide me with enough information.
