Communicating between two GPIB interfaces using NI-VISA on Linux


I know how to communicate with a measurement instrument equipped with a GPIB interface via NI-VISA using a Linux pc.

I have a Linux pc with two GPIB interfaces and NI-VISA installed.

Is it possible to connect the two GPIB interfaces on my Linux pc together with a GPIB cable and use one interface as the master and the second interface as the slave.

The idea is to make the second GPIB interface react as a measurement instrument so it can receive the commands transmitted by the first GPIB interface (The master).

Can this be done using NI-VISA?

An example of the NI-VISA command flow would be appreciated.
