Hi Andrew,

Scopes with ethernet often use either the VXI11 protocol or a telnet-like TCP connection. Both are supported by asynDriver.

If the scope is programmed with plain text commands, you can use StreamDevice on top of asynDriver. http://epics.web.psi.ch/software/streamdevice/

No C-programming involved.

Best regards,
Dirk

Hey all,

I'm new to EPICS and was wondering if there was a very straight forward, detailed tutorial for writing device support. Specifically, I need to communicate with a Tektronix scope over Ethernet (the scope has an IP address) and I would like to use my OS X laptop to run the IOC. What libraries do I need to establish Ethernet communication? Are they included in EPICS base? I didn't see anything along those lines in the base-3-14-11/dev directory. I'm a pretty experienced programer and run code on my laptop regularly. I just don't have any experience with communication libraries in C/C++. Thanks very much for help.
