Communicating from one GPIB card to another

We have a few of the NI PXI GPIB cards ( and want to set up communication from one card to another. Are there any articles/examples I can read on how to set this up? Attempting to use NI-MAX and the interactive control results in a bus error once I connect two cards together.

In MAX, you need to turn one of the cards into a slave device.  You do this by unchecking a "System Controller" option for the one you want to receive commands.
