-===Setting up the myCNC control board=== 
  
-  * Connect 24V DC power supply to myCNC control board 
-    * Here are power-up examples for ET6, ET7, ET10 control boards 
-  * Connect myCNC Ethernet controller with Network cable directly to Host computer or to Network Router. If use Odroid-C2 (Raspberry-Pi3) computers as a Host, Network cable is a short 0.5ft cable between Odroid & Controller {{mycnc:​et6-odroid-network-cable.jpg}} 
-  * Setup Network addresses for Host computer and myCNC Ethernet controller. Addresses of Controller and Host should be in same local network. For Example - <​code>​Controller Address: 192.168.0.78 
-Host Address: 192.168.0.100</​code>​ or <​code>​Controller Address: 192.168.5.10 
-Host Address: 192.168.5.11</​code>​ Look [[mycnc:​change_ip_address_of_mycnc_control_board|here]] if need to change IP address of controller board 
-  * Goto MyCNC software, Cfg Settings, Network Tab and  
-    * Set actual Controller IP address to "​Controller IP Address"​ to tell the software where it can find myCNC Controller, ​ 
-    * Set "​Network Protocol"​ to "​UDP",​ 
-    * press "​Save"​ button on the top-right of myCNC screen. ​ 
-    * Changes should be applied on the fly and **UDP message counter** should start counting which means communication between Controller & Host works correct. {{mycnc::​mycnc-quickstart-network-settings-01.png}} 
-  * Connect Pulse-Dir signals from servo or stepper driver to myCNC control board {{hardware:​et6-stepper-driver-connection-001.png}} 
-  * Check what minimal pulse width your drivers accept and set pulse width of myCNC control board accordingly (equal or more) in MyCNC software -> Cfg Settings -> Hardware Tab -> Common Hardware Settings {{mycnc:​mycnc-common-hardware-settings-pulse-width-001.png}} MyCNC-ET6, myCNC-ET7 controllers support separate pulse width settings for the first 4 channels (#0, #1, #2, #3) and the rest 2 (#4, #5). This option can be convenient if use high performance servo drivers with low psed stepper drivers (for example high speed servos for X, Y, Z axes and low speed stepper for rotational A axis). myCNC-ET10 controller use only the first pulse width selector for all motor outputs.
