Hi, I am using the CANalyzer with the vector VN3600.
If your have two nodes that talk correctly you can put the CANalyzer in asynchronous mode. On the VN3600 this works has a monitor of the line and finds the configuration information required in order to synchronize with the nodes.
If you use the synchronous mode the vector card has to simulate a node and this is more complicated, you need to use capl and program the card in order to send synchronization frames.
Alternatively you could use the mixed mode...
