all the other serial rs232 ports I've encountered have had instructions something like

db9        db25
4 loop to6

so forth and so on
these instructions don't:(

I tried a normal db9 cable with an adapter to db25 and got zip.
this is what the manual says.

Serial Port: Pin 2 Rx (from host) Output. RS232 level receive line. Host computer

Serial Port: Pin 3 Tx (to host) Input. RS232 level transmit line. Host computer

Serial Port: Pin 5 Gnd(1) RS232 return (ground). Host computer

Serial port pin 4 is connected to pin 6, and pin 7 is connected to pin 8 to simulate
hardware handshaking if necessary. Pin 9 of the serial port is not used by the Pixie.
6. The serial port can be connected to a different host than that which is supplying step
and direction. It only needs to be connected while tuning the motor or setting other

these directions seem ...... confusing or I just duns

thanks ben

I'm using a c11 rev3 baord and am finding the markings
 a little confusing, being a machinest & not electronics type.
please let me know if I have this right.

on the output market X8

 function   terminal marking
 X step   =  2
 X dir     =   3
 com     =   ground
 Y step  =   4
 Y dir     =   5
 com      =  ground
 Z step   =  6
 Z dir      =  7
 com      =  ground
