Connecting two pxi-2527 with NI Switch Executive

Go to solution

Hi sherlockholm,


Thanks for the advice. You are right that I only need to fire up the task (no need to control each item in the scanning list). I've implemented an OK button (event structure) so when the VI is running, the VI is only launched when the OK button is pressed. The screenshot shows the front panel.

 Now I just need to replace the OK button with some communication message. The message will be an Ethernet message sending from another machine connected to the host PC (this PC has the executable VI, and the physical switch+DMM). I searched NI website and only found serial polling of GBIP (link: https://www.ni.com/en-us/support/documentation/supplemental/06/serial-polling-and-srq-servicing-with...). However, I don't think the testing plan has GBIP but just ethernet connection between the other machine and the host PC. So, is there any way to do that with ethernet, not GBIP? Edit: I think it depends on what kind of "ethernet message" the other machine is sending. Will find out.


Thanks again!

There are different LabVIEW examples that show communication between two different computers. I would look through the LabVIEW networking examples to see if one of those would fit your application:


  1. Open LabVIEW
  2. Select Help >> Find Examples...
  3. Double click the networking folder.
  4. See if one of those examples works for what you are wanting.

Hope this helps!
