If this is a PXIe-8880 system that you recently migrated from PharLap, make sure its BIOS is updated up to the latest version. Download the latest BIOS version from this website PXIe-8880 Firmware and Additional Drivers Download, and follow the instructions in the downloaded files to proceed with the update.
Make sure that the connection is not being blocked by the computer’s local firewall or antivirus.

If your computer uses a network proxy, make sure that there is an exception made for download.ni.com, please follow the steps in this article in order to do so.
In the scenario of a migration from a PharLap OS, it's possible that the BIOS originally installed in the target is outdated and might raise some incompatibility issues with the newer NI Linux image versions. In order to avoid this issue, it's important to update the controller's BIOS to the latest available version.
