    Ethernet Smooth stepper, C32 board MPG4 Pendant, New having trouble setting up.

    Can someone explain how to connect the MPG4 Pendant to a C32 board from CNC4PC? I have everything installed but for some reason I can't get the Pendant to work. The directions talk about Brains and Plugins, well if you don't know what Brains are how can one install them or know what configuration to read. The Pendant plugs right into the C32 board and then from what I can tell you have to set up the Port and Pins in Mach3. I am at a loss and not sure how to set this thing up. Thanks for the Help in advance.

    Yes I figured it out a long time ago. I can tell you how to do it and give you all the ports, pins aND how to get the brain if you would like. I am out of town and get back on Tuesday. I can have it working for you real quick.
