HP8757C SNA + HP8350B SO + NIMax

I am trying to build a system using the above set of equipment, and I am trying to send commands to the HP8350B using the NIMax software from National Instruments and a National Instruments GPIB - USB - HS connector. The software recognises the existence of the network analyzer, and realises it has the necessary two ports; 16 along with 17 for the passthrough. However, I am unable to send any instructions through the passthrough address to the sweeper. Every time I do it, the Analyzer tells me that Data PassThrough (is) Executing, but then the system simply times out and nothing happens. 
Does anyone have any idea what I can do to fix this?

ETA Sorry, it is an 8757C, not B. Title changed to account
