* USB instruments are those that support the USBTMC or USBTMC-USB488 specifications.

** The E5813A Networked 5-Port USB Hub and E5805A USB/4-Port RS-232 Interface are shipped with driver software that allows them to appear as additional ports on the Windows system. They are not directly supported by the Agilent IO Libraries software, but can be used with the indicated Agilent IO Libraries revisions.

*** LAN instruments are those that support the VXI-11 or SICL-LAN protocol

**** Not supported on Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012
