    Did you heat your hotends? The calibration ode doesn do that, have to do it manually. Hotend temp lower than 170° won't let the extruder move, cold extrusion prevention...

    You can deactivate it sending M302 with a terminal if you want to for testing or when ever you wanna move the extruder with a cold hotend....

    Unfortunately I know no tutorial for this. I for myself have no experience with a direct connection from a PC to the printer. Sorry...
