grpc setup NI PXI

Hi,

I want to setup grpc with the NI PXI 8881.The PXI 8881 has a VDG(5551) and VST(5841).

 

From the host pc i want to setup remote control with VST and VDG using grpc.How to setup grpc with VST and VDG?

 

I tried with "GitHub - ni/grpc-device: gRPC server providing remote access to NI device driver APIs. ".This doesnt support VST and VDG.How can i setup grpc using client server API's?

gRPC supports RFSG, RFSA, and RFmx - these are the drivers required to control your VST and VSA, what other driver are you referring to?

Searching more on your 5551 and 5841 combinations, you're not using 5841 as a regular VST through RFSA/RFSG drivers instead using a special driver called NI-VRTS.

 

And it looks like NI-VRTS is not yet supported on gRPC, please raise a support ticket with NI or contact your NI sales rep / NI Application Engineer to understand how to get started with gRPC for VRTS.

 

Note: If you had mentioned NI-VRTS in your title or in the description instead of NI-PXI, it would have saved a lot of time in discovering that you're using a special PXI system that required special drivers. In the future, if you're using specialized equipment, please explicitly mention it so the person responding to your query need not search a lot to understand your application/hardware setup.
