Questions on ADRV9026 and gui issue

Hi,

  [1] how close is adrv9009 to adrv9026. I could NOT find adrv9026 related hdl files on adi-github. So, i plan to use adrv9009 HDL reference design. can u plz throw more light on the possibility to use adrv9009 hdl files to integrate with adrv9026 device/board.

  [2] Support with zcu102 board: - is there any reason why adi preferred to integrate adrv9026 with ads9 board, but NOT regular boards like zcu102 with fmc connectors. My question is integration of zcu102 with adrv9026 board feasibility.

 [3] Followed procedure exactly in doc to connect gui to board. ensured ping [to board] works and PC firewall is disabled. leds ds801 and ds802 are illuminated.

i get this error

============================

Unable to connect to device.
