configure cFP in Devices and Interfaces

I am using LabVIEW 7.1 MAX 3.1.1.3004, NIDAQmx 7.5 (I believe) and am trying to use a cFP-2020 with 4 different modules, cFP-AI-110, cFP-RLY423, cFP-DO-401, and a cFP-DIO-550. I have assigned a static IP to the module and it shows up in MAX under remote systems. So far so good.
But under "Devices and Interfaces" the only option is serial FP. In the past I used FP-1600s and they were always available under Devices and Interfaces after the network config was completed. Has this behavior changed or am I doing something wrong?
Also, once past this hurdle, the examples included with LabVIEW do not apply to the modules that I need to use. Can anyone point me to specific examples for these modules?
TIA

my mistake. After the network config the device shows up under "Data Neighborhood" not Devices and Interfaces; and yes it is there.
anyhow, I could still use a pointer to some examples if anyone knows of some out there.
 
thanx (sorry for the confusion on my part)

Hello Imd2,
 
Have you seen the Fieldpoint examples that install with the driver?  There are analog input, digital input, and digital output examples that all apply to your hardware.  To find these examples in LabVIEW go to Help >> Find Examples >> Hardware Input and Output >> Fieldpoint >> Getting Started.  Take a look at these and let us know if they help.
 
Thanks,
Laura
