What is an 89090A. A search of Agilent's site did not return any results.
Can you attach the programming manual or something that explains the command you are sending? Typically, a query is terminated with a ? so the read timeout would be expected, though the fact that it does not support *IDN? could mean that the instrument has no standard programming interface at all. You obviously can run only queries that are listed in the manual.

The manual is this one:
On the device it said Agilent 89090A on it.

I use VISA but I believe the 488 tool works the same way - simply type in the control characters after the command string.
You also have the EOS configuration there and on the GPIB properties page.
