Did you mean G540x2? details like this can be very important.

Yes, I meant g540x2, that was a typo. Thanks :)

I'm not %100 sure I have the signals set up correctly, but I do have *an* axis on each Stepgen, so it should be moving even if the axis assignment is wrong

I meant more on the physical wiring side of things that is the step and direction signals coming from the mesa card going to the drives.

Yes, my test is to literally move the parallel cable from the mesa to the parallel port, boot up my old linuxcnc config, and jog it around. I close linuxcnc, move the cable to the mesa, reboot the computer, start the 6i25 config, and get what I'm getting now.

I see, then it seems that there is something amiss with the 6i25 config. Unfortunately I'm not familiar with this mesa board so can't offer much in the way of support for that.

Upload the correct files, please.
Uploaded file = cnc.hal
ini entry = Platform_5i25.hal

I wasn't thinking when I saved the files with a different name while pulling them off the CNC PC.

I tried uploading them with the correct names, but the uploader added a date to the filename.

Rest assured, the ini and Hal I uploaded go together.

No-one has any other ideas? I'm at loss here.

if you disconnect the cable, does pin 16 (GPIO16) read high?
The fact that it does not seem to work suggests the the 6I25 might be damaged.

You can verify operation of that pin by reading it in halshow
It should be high if unconnected and low if grounded (jumpered to pin 25)
