Title: SCPI access to LeCroy Wavesurfer 3054?
Post by: Coliban on August 13, 2020, 08:03:32 am
Hello,

i am trying to connect (telnet, sockets) to LeCroy WS3054.

But that is not working :-(

I can connect with telnet without a port an login to the system. But then there is only (presumably) the Embedded Windows environment which is useless for accessing the functions of the WS304.

Is it possible to establish such a socket connection?

Try to see what ports are open:

nmap -p- <IP>

Try port 5024 as it's common to many Siglent models.

However the software and encryption are on another level  ;D

There is no way to establish a socket connection :-(

Following ports are available:

Port 111 should be for the RPC/VXI protocol (LXI). You can try my program, I would like to know if it works with it.
But it is only for Windows and can only send and receive SCPI commands at the moment:

This is Lecroy documentation on the topic.

If it is as described in the linked document that the LXI connection requires a password, then my program does not work. I have not provided a way to enter a password.

@PeDre: that is very kind, thank you, but i am working on Linux.

@2N3055: thank you. But it seems that LeCroy is depending on Windows/Basic and so on.

I didnt manage to get SCPI fully to work on LeCroy (nor LXI). While i can attach the Device and, for example, set an SCPI command, for example *IDN?, it seems that the Lecroy is not fully supporting SCPI because the other commands are not working and the (very) old Error Messages ( at least 5 years old) is given by th LeCroy: WARNING : CURRENT REMOTE CONTROL INTERFACE IS TCPI


This message is given regardless if connected with visa or vxi.

My opinion is that I have no problems connecting all sorts of devices, Rhode & Schwarz, Keysight, Socket, GBIP, etc.,  etc. because they are supporting simple TCPIP socket connections

I am not able to get SCPI on the LeCroy to run.
SCPI and socket communication is working on my Rohde & Schwarz (RTC1002) out of the box.
So i will order the R&S RTE 1024.
