Well, I braced myself to have this be quite an ordeal, after I saw mention of driver downloads on Rigol’s site, and wondering if I would have to jump through any extra hoops because of me running primarily Linux. I finally decided to bite the bullet and work on getting my computer ready to do it, and started searching for what I had to do to get it to work.
And surprisingly, the answer was not much at all!
After running through the instructions on that page and figuring out which IP address my ‘scope was at, I was done. Everything ‘just worked!’ I’m very pleased with it!
Here’s a screenshot of it picking up random noise.
Just as a side note, to see the MAC address of the Rigol, follow these steps:
- Push the ‘Utility’ button
- Push the ‘IO Setting’ on-screen button
- Push the ‘LAN Conf.’ on-screen button
And that’s it, there will be quite a few network details shown on the screen.
