Have a USB-ETHERNET connection to an Agilent Network Analyzer. I can ping the instrument with cmd prompt. But I keep getting stuck at setting up a network connection through MAX or trying to connect through Labview VISA connections. I get the error "Insufficient location information or the device or resource is not present in the system".
Solved! Go to Solution.
What is the IP address of the instrument? What is the IP address of the computer with the USB-Ethernet adapter? How are you connected to the instrument (direct connection? switch? router?)?
It is an Agilent E8363B Network Analyzer. It is not a VXI-LXi instrument. I'm using a D-Link USB 2.0 Fast Ethernet Adapter. The ip address of the analyzer is 169.254.253.181 and the ip address of the pc is 169.254.253.182, same subnet 255.255.0.0. I did read that it may need a different address something like "TCPIP0::"HOSTNAME:SOCKET:INSTR"
Thank you for the help.
I found that the firmware is A.6.04.32, which is older than the units shipped with LXI-1.1 & VXI-11.3.
I tried to use max to create a link to the instrument. But it did not recognize the analyzer. Although while it is searching for VXI instruments i see the "169.254.253.182 Agilent-IFPFUIJ" in the search window temporarily.
