    gcms and internet


      I have 7890A GC and 5977B MS which are connected to the instrument via LAN to the pc and the question is should I connect the pc to the network via net cable so i can use google or yahoo etc....

          Hello! Agilent would not recommend this. If you absolutely must connect it to the network, please note that there are certain precautions to take, like using the built-in PC Network Interface Card for the instrument connection, using a switch along with a secondary Ethernet adapter (USB-to Ethernet or an after-market PCI or PCI-e card) instead of connecting the instruments to the Wide Area Network, adjusting the binding order of the network adapters so that the instrument connection is first, disabling Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) for the instrument connection, and separating the instrument subnet entirely from the company subnets.
