The NI “Scan for Instruments” feature does not seem to work. How can I control another instrument via GPIB?
This applies to the 266 and 500MHz CPU boards only! The PNA application controls the talker/listener vs controller mode. If the application was last left in talker/listener mode, then it must be set to controller mode before communication can be established with external instruments. Start the PNA application, select System, Configure, SICL/GPIB, and click on system controller. The NI Scan utility should now work even if the PNA application is closed. It should stay in this mode until the PNA is completely re-started.
