Remote control 33220A via LAN

Hello, I'm an undergrad research assistant in UCSF. I couldn't find sufficient resources to solve my problem.

I'm trying to connect a function generator 33220A via LAN, and control the function generator remotely from a linux computer. Is it possible to do that?  Basically, I need to remotely control the function generator from a linux computer, generate a square wave, and takes in a user defined input as duty cycle.

My PI wants me to use a C program to do so, but I couldn't find any thing related to using a c program to communicate with a function generator.

Can anyone give me some guidance of how to go about this?
