[title] Connect to Duet - Mac OS
[* black] This step is for ***Mac OS*** users only! Windows and Linux users skip this step.
+[* black] We recommend you connect to your Duet using a terminal application with a graphical user interface (GUI) such as [|SerialTools from the AppStore].
+ [* black] Install SerialTools and run it. Select the Duet from the 'Serial Port' drop down; it will be named something like "usbmodem1411". Baud rate should be 115200, and Local Echo should be ticked. Click 'Connect' to connect.
+[* black] It is also possible to use the built-in 'screen' terminal application. However, you cannot see the commands you type in, and the responses from the Duet are not formatted nicely on the screen. If you want to use 'screen', do this:
+ [* black] Open Applications > Utilities > Terminal, then run ***ls /dev/tty.****
+ [* black] Copy the result that has USB in the name. For example; ***/dev/tty.usbmodem1411***
+ [* black] Run ***screen /dev/tty.usbmodem1411 115200***. Replace "usbmodem1411" with the result you received. You should see a blank screen. If you are connecting for the first time to a Duet 2 WiFi, you will see lots of ''"WiFi reported error: no known networks found"'' messages. Don't worry, that's normal.
+ [* black] Hit enter and you should see OK returned. You are connected successfully.
