Having Issues new 6HC
Having a number of issues and have no idea where to start. I've been running two industrial printers that run Duet2 ethernet as stand alones. Both machines run PanelDues 7is (one is intregrated.) I connect with either DWC or installing gcodes through a SD card extension.
I've been running these two machines for nearly two years and have become fairly comfortable using them, I've decided to build a large format machine for home, so, for me, it made sense to continue with something I'm somewhat familiar with, using Duet controls.
I thought it may be somewhat easier than it has turned out to be, I tired to install the firmware from a Duet 2 onto my Duet 3 considering I wanted to run my machine the same set up. I knew I'd have to make changes in specific areas, but I can't get nothing to work correctly.
The PanelDue connects and displays some information correctly, but nothing else seems to work. Really frustrated and don't know where to start, can someone please provide some direction?

@cromker can you post an output of M122 and the config you're using.
A photo of the machine will also be helpful

I suggest starting from scratch using the config tool https://configtool.reprapfirmware.org/General
@Cromker I think this is the best course of action. Start with a basic config file set from the tool until you get everything working, then if you wish you can break it apart into separate macros as needed. Trying to get started when everything is split apart like that is a nightmare.
As for the firmware on the Duet3, do you have access to USB terminal using YAT yet? That might be the easiest way to get started because then at least you can talk to the board.
Alternatively, start with the SD card and config that came with the Duet itself. Since it's an ethernet based board all you need is M552 S1 in the config.g to enable networking and you should be able to reach it via DWC if you can find the IP address on your router or try http://duet3.local
Also check these out if you haven't yet already.
The initial setup of a Duet3 is very similar to a Duet2 Ethernet.

@cromker yea, the common settings won't work in its current form as all the names used for the IOs etc are different than on the duet 2.
Start a fresh, get a base config and then you can always compare against the common settings to see where the differences are
Thanks for your time. still working on it.
Thanks for your time, I really appreciate it!
I'll updated the firmware on the Paneldue as well as the control board. I've created a config file ( used mostly default settings just to test) using the config tool. I've confirmed that the Paneldue is working, connected it to a running machine. The new config file has both the correct baud rate that matches the baud rate in the Paneldue and the M575 P1. I have the M552 network line and I've confirmed that I can connect to another machine using the same computer, I can't get the paneldue to connect nor can I connect with DWC.
I've also confirmed that the wire connections are good at both ends and that they are connected correctly.
