CoE.
Mega-ulink is a proprietary protocol from Hiwin. In my opinion, the right place for this protocol is the recycle bin. ;-)

Thank you!!
Also can you please point me in the right direction with Ethercat for LinuxCNC. Where to start, how to install etc? Is there any guide?

One of the advantages of EtherCAT is that it is well described and documented.
So, for example, the functional principles are well described on the website of the author of the protocol, Beckhoff.
Most EtherCAT installations on LinuCNC use an IgH master. And a good description is on their site.
And about a practical installation on LinuxCNC, for example, in this forum.

a new little problem ... instead of installing everything from nuvo I took the same hardware and clone a pc's disk with mint-linuxcnc-ethercat fully functional. I inserted the disk on the new pc, I gave the command "sudo update-ethercat-config" and the master started running .... but it does not "see" the modules I think ..... here is the message on the terminal
dem@dem:~$ dmesg | grep -i EtherCAT
[   22.223215] EtherCAT: Master driver 1.5.2 unknown
[   22.225795] EtherCAT: 1 master waiting for devices.
[   22.228861] ec_generic: EtherCAT master generic Ethernet device module 1.5.2 unknown

.... it is obvious that I have to "reboot" something else .... but I don't know what .... I was sorry that "sudo update-ethercat-config" was enough .... without the update for another linuxcnc did not "see "not even ethercat

Did you changed the mac address of master0 in /etc/default/ethercat to the new one of the new pc?
