problem connecting to 33250A function generator via RS232 port

Question asked by yangy5 on Mar 7, 2014
Hi,

Using PC(windows XP SP3) to remote control 33250A via serial port, installed Agilent IO Libraries Suite and 33250A Function / Arbitrary Waveform Generator IVI and MATLAB Instrument Drivers. Using windows hyperterminal to write string to 33250A, no response at all, no 'remote' icon showing at display of 33250A. Checked serial port on PC and the connecting cable is ok because it works for other instrument. The Baud Rate, Data Bits are set the same for both PC serial port and 33250A(19200, 8 data bits, 1 stop bits) Do I miss something? Thanks.
