I just need to confirm if the Prologix adapter works with the 8903 and Pete's software. I searched a bit, but nothing solid yet.

Feedback is always appreciated!

Pete's software uses Agilent VEE which will use VISA to communicate with the GPIB interface. The Prologic adapter does not have a VISA driver, unfortunately. The 82357B clone will use the genuine Agilent 82357B drivers including VISA, so it should work with Pete's software. (I don't have one and haven't tried that though; I have a NI GPIB card).

Have you seen this open-source DIY USB to GPIB adapter?

It also appears to be possible to connect GPIB to a parallel printer port; here's one example:
If your computer lacks a parallel port, there are cards available.
