Scan tool for Med duty trucks

I'm going to be heading out of state to look at and likely purchase a shorter international bus with a vt365. I am very familiar with the 6.0 fords and decent at diagnosing and fixing their issues. I however do not know if my scan tool will interface with the internationals. I have a Snap On Ethos pro scan tool and was wondering if I would be able to use this to view live data from the computer or if specialty scanner would be needed.

Found out my scan tool would not interface with the internationals. Got the bus home from the five hour drive. It's a 2007 7 window that just turned 100,000 miles. Super excited that I stole it for $1,500. It's in great shape and very minimal surface rust. Ran decent but I believe the variator plate on the turbo is sticking. No problem, easy fix that won't cost a dime unless the hole in the plate or the pin is wobbled out. Will be turning into a snowmobile hauler for trips out west. I just started scratching the surface of some of the resources and knowledge on this forum. Looking forward to getting a chance to dig a little deeper around here.

Scangauge D should work if it's diesel.
