After connecting the Warp9 Ethernet smoothsteper and a CNC4YOU HG08 Bob. I can't reset the Estop. I set the boards per the on-site information. The led on the smoothsteper also shows the estoppel is on

To which pins have you wired your (normally closed contact) EStop switch ?

Check the instructions for your HG08 - In the absence of an Estop switch you may need to connect a link between IN5 and Vcc.

I have the leds showing ok for the smooth stepper.HG08 BOB and on the motor driver.I have 5v at the BOB at the VCC pin but this go's down. to 2.69v on the,  other output pins.there is no sign of voltage movement at the pins during jogging in Mach 3 and the motor does not turn.I have tried changing the pins in mach3 to high and low and also a number of pin numbers but nothing happens.what am I doing wrong.

How are you powering the HG08 ?
