Issue Details

I am unable to remotely connect to my PXI Modules on my remote system. I am using a MXI connection. On the local PC, the modules show up as expected. On the remote PC, I am trying to access the PXI Modules via the local PCs IP address. However, the modules are not showing up as expected in NI Measurement & Automation Explorer.

Solution

When using a MXI connection the recommended way to access PXI hardware from a remote system is by using Windows Remote Desktop to remote into the local PC. Note: In order to access the hardware via an IP address, you will need a real-time PXI controller rather than a MXI connection.
