Trying to read data from 3458A using the E5810A interface

Using the E5810A web interface I can send commands from the manual that are understood by the instrument (set new range, change function, etc) but I can't get it to initiate a reading and display the results.  It won't even show the results of 'ID?'    (not the usual IDN?)  I know that 'preset norm' sets the output format to ASCII but that doesn't help either.

My ultimate goal is to communicate with it outside of NI, Labview, Matlab, or any other commercial library.  Any leads to code like this would be appreciated!
