Take a look at the SmoothStepper configuration screen. You will see a setting to change the direction of pins 2-9 to Input or Output. The default in Input. Just change it to output and you'll be all set.

Plugin Control menu then ESS PLugin Config then change the options for whichever ports you want 2-9 to be outputs, they are Inputs as default, see pic.

Probably because you don't have the EStop input set up correctly. What sort of drives are you using, what kind of breakout board, etc? Can you attach your XML profile?
