Taking data

After struggling a couple of days, it turned out that only the older version of the software worked properly with that system! Now we have an oscilloscope for bringing up the data, wich is connected through a GPIB port (some IEEE standard) to an ethernet adapter, which in turn has a unique IP address and sends the data over the network. Now, I have hooked up my laptop to another internet connection, plug in the IP address of the adapter and then receive the data. So each time we take a new measurement, my screen refreshes with the new data we got! And then I can export the values and do whatever calculations I want with them.
