Followed the LAN setup in the manual, yet all I get is Powerfail. Using Chemstation version B.05.04 (which is supposed to work on Windows 10).
Hello monty_python66 :
Please see the attached communication troubleshooting guide. One possibility is that you do not have the addresses set to use the default LAN card address. The default address of the G1369x LAN card is 192.168.254.11 with switches 5&6 up. The switches are located on the card. Set your computer to 192.168.254.10.
The unit connects using a JetDIrect card - there are no dip switches on it. I've also tried connecting using the GPIB interface with the same result. I did manage to get it to work once by connecting to it using the old Win7 computer, then disconnecting it and connecting to the Win10 one. However, once rebooted the connection was lost. I've even installed Bootp but that hasn't helped.
The HP Jet Direct card was not supported on Agilent instruments after Windows XP.
It works fine under Windows 7 - I guess Windows 10 is the straw that has broken the camel's back. In the meantime I may have found a couple of G1369G LAN cards that should cure the problem.
did you ever get this to work? We have found lots of issues with getting IP addresses to instruments using Bootp on Windows 10. The fact that it worked with 10 if you connected it to 7 first suggests that it isn’t picking up an ip if you start on Windows 10 but got it from 7. Did pinging the Ip work on 10. We have a 8453 that works fine on 10 by the way. The 8453 started with GPIB and then was converted to LAN so it is similar to yours
sorry for the late post, just saw your message. kevin.
Once I replaced the JetDirect card with the G1369C it works perfectly.
