We don't use the NI stuff at all.  We have our own
SCPI-over-GPIB-over-VXI11-over-TCP/IP code all in python, based around
some code off of sourceforge.  We use it exclusively with the E5810A
which is great.  It also works with the Prologix USB device, and if
you have the right magic kernel incantations the GPIB-USB-B from NI.
It would probably also work with the GPIB-ethernet gateway from ICS
electronics which is also VXI11 like the E5810A, but about 25%
