Here you find a few VISA resource name examples.

When using a GPIB interface to control an instrument:

Format: GPIB[board]::primary address[::GPIB secondary address][::INSTR]

Examples:
GPIB0::16::INSTR

When using LAN interface to control an instrument:

Format: TCPIP[board]::host address[::LAN device name][::INSTR]

Examples:
TCPIP::192.168.0.168::INSTR
TCPIP0::localhost::inst0::INSTR (example to run ICE on a ZVA/ZVT itself)

When using a LAN-GPIB interface to control an instrument:

Format: TCPIP[board]::host address::logical unit number,GPIB address[::INSTR]

Examples:
TCPIP0::hpibgw1::7,17::INSTR
TCPIP0::192.168.0.11::7,17::INSTR
TCPIP0::192.168.0.11::hpib,17::INSTR
(hpibgw1 is the DNS record corresponding to IP address 192.168.0.11)
