    I'm new at this and have and 8757 scaler analyzer. I picked up the Porligix usb to gpib adapter
    that is supportive of the HP 7470a plotter, but i don't know how to get the plots to work properly,
    i see it talking the the analyzer but it comes up with a communication error, has anyone used this utility and had success.??
    and if so what setting are used in the HPIB configuration file.

    Okay I figured it out i had the adapter on the wrong HPIB bus once i switched it i was able to wait for initiated plot.
    plot all
    and the transfer completed. and the plots look better than expected.
