Problem connecting 8164B to PC via LAN

Hi everyone,

I got some problems when I try to connect my 8164B mainframe to my PC via Ethernet cable.
It seems like the communication cannot be established if the PC is already started and connected to the mainframe during its boot sequence.
The Agilent Connection Expert software reports the following message, using the Visa Open Report:

Not reported in viFindRsrc
The resource name TCPIP0:: can be opened from a VISA program using viOpen().
The resource name will not be reported by viFindRsrc()

Then, when I try to query the mainframe (*IDN?)  I got the following error message:

! VI_ERROR_RSRC_NFOUND: No matching resources found / no more matches
Visa ErrorCode: 0xBFFF0011 (-1073807343)

Any idea about what is happening?
For now, I must turn the mainframe on first, and then connect it to the PC via cable once the initialization is over.
However, I'm looking for another solution without having to connect/disconnect the LAN connection due to site constraints.

Thanks in advance
