Version: 1.0

Language: Agilent VEE Pro 6.0 (or later)

Instruments: E8257C PSG Analog Signal Generator

This program illustrates how to program using To/From Sockets in Agilent VEE Pro to program an instrument over the LAN. (Note that with VEE Pro 7.0 and later you can communicate to an instrument over LAN directly through the Instrument Manager and it is not recommended to use To/From Sockets with those versions.)

To use this example, save contrib_vee_E8257C_Socket_may_04.vee anywhere handy and either double-click it or start VEE Pro and Open it from the File menu.
