So i recently bought a N5161A for next to nothing , the box works fine ( im controlling it over LAN right now ) but i would like to have a frontpanel on the box ( so essentially a N5181A ) , I looked over the service manual and it looks the 61 and 81 are identical with the exception of the FP and the complete FP assembly is available as spare part for about $1700 which is reasonable in my view !
The big question here is , if i buy the frontpanel and swap it out will it work or are there any other changes needed to make this work ? ( firmware, configuration settings ?  )  just wanted to clarify this before i spend the $1700 for the frontpanel , dont want to spend this money just to find that it does not work !
