I have obtained a small bench top router. Running Mach3 with a Smoothstepper. When I try to jog the axes the steppers only rotate in one direction when + or - is called on the keyboard or screen control. Thought I was past all this but swapping wires etc. has no effect. Just know I have something wrong that my brain is not focusing on. Please help!

Have you tried seeing if the DIR pin changes state on the drive It should be high in one direction and low in the other 5V or 0V ish
