The plugin doesn't need the pins enabled in Mach only that the MPG is correctly connected to the Galil. You'll need to go to the tabout screen in Mach and enable jogging and MPG mpde and setup an increment such as .005" and select the axis to move. Use Smartterm to make sure that the encoder is hooked up properly.

where in mach do i map the inputs and outputs for the extended I/O on the galil 2040.

I am actually converting from a Grex over to Galil on a bridgeport interact mill
on the Grex I had 26 inputs and 12 output LED's on the panel..

The mapping of extended i/o is explained in the PDF file on the Mach plugins Galil web page.
