How do I load/recall trace & CTI files from PC to analyzer?

I am trying to load Citifile data (*.cti) (or trace data) from a PC onto a 8722ES network analyzer for display. This data was generated artificially and represents the "ideal circuit S-parameters".  My goal is to tune the physical circuit so that its response closely matches that of the ideal.  This task would be a lot easier if the ideal response was displayed on the screen as a static trace so I can match to it.  I know that the network analyzer has a recall function.  However, it seems that it can only recall data from internal memory or an external floppy disk.  I have the network analyzer connected to an external PC via GPIB. Is there a simple way I can transfer/recall .cti files from the PC onto the network analyzer this way?  It seems all the applications I find (such as IntuiLink Connectivity Software) all go the other way around, i.e. they capture data FROM the analyzer TO the computer. I want just the opposite. Any help or suggestions would be very appreciated. Thanks.
