Try changing the active low setting for the estop input.

ry changing the active low setting for the estop input.
I can't seem to find that.

I get an error that says
"Reconfiguration estop"

I am using ESS with Mach 3 latest version
Win7 ultimate
When turning on the Mach 3 I select the plugin ESS and then type n the ip address and it will not communicate with the machine.
We had to change computers, everything was working fine, the other computer suffered a hd failure.
I have follewed the install instructions step by step and still can't get it to communicate.
Any ideas ?
Thanks,

Hi,
you absolutely need the ESS to communicate with the PC. Thereafter it is appropriate to fiddle/tune/initialize both
Mach3 settings but also the ESS plugin. As it stands without communication between the ESS and the PC any efforts to make
settings in either Mach3 or the plugin are wasted.

May I suggest taking up the matter on the Warp9 forum....there is much more focused advice on causing the ESS to work with
Mach3.
