[title] Setup Terminal Emulator
[* icon_note] To set up a network connection, we must use a terminal emulation program to talk to the Duet via the USB cable. We recommend using [https://sourceforge.net/projects/y-a-terminal/|YAT] in Windows. This is because 3D printer host programs (such as [http://www.pronterface.com/|Pronterface]) send all characters in uppercase, and your WiFi settings (SSID and password ) are case sensitive.
[* blackblue] Windows users: [https://sourceforge.net/projects/y-a-terminal/|Download YAT here.] Install YAT using default options.

[* black] Setup YAT to use <LF> as the end of line character. Go to "Terminal" Menu -> "Settings" -> "Text Settings" -> "EOL sequence:" set to <LF>
[* blackblue] Mac OSX Users: Open Applications > Utilities > Terminal .

[* black] Run ''ls /dev/tty.*'' 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. Hit enter and you should see OK returned. You are connected successfully.
[* icon_caution] If you get an error, ''Sorry, could not find a PTY.'' unplug the USB, plug it back in and try again.
[* icon_note] Some users have reported issues with YAT under Windows 8 not connecting properly. ifIf YAT does not workwork, try pronterface[http://www.pronterface.com/|Pronterface] to confirm the computer can talk to the Duet
