I am not sure whether this will work or not. I am connectiong agilent E4418B (RF power meter)  to agilent MXG (N5181A) or MXA(N9020A) via GPIB connection.

I can control the MXG (N5181A) via LAN connection. I would like to ask whether I can control the E4418B (RF power meter) via LAN connection from MXG?
( mean from pc to MXG (via LAN), then MXG to E4418B via GPIB)

I have tried the following comand, but doesn;t work.
TCPIP0::,9::INSTR  (assume that GPIB add for E4418=9)

Pls kindly advise. Many thanks.

p/s: The purpose of doing this is to get rid of the GPIB card in the pc.
