This may sound a stupid question but I am new to playing with stepper motors and drivers. I am hoping someone can help with my query. Basically I bought some stepper driver boards off Fleebay. The drivers have 6 connectors for the outputs. These are:-
- Enable +
- Enable -
- Direction +
- Direction -
- Pulse +
- Pulse -
I only have 4 connectors on my breakout board, these are
XE - enable?
XD - direction
XS - Pulse/step
XN - Ground
Would I be right to assume the three negatives are linked together and then back to XN?
Thanks I shall give it a go, see what happens.

So let me get this correct. Do I only connect the following:-
Direction - to XD
Pulse - to XS
All other connections are left disconnected.
There are a couple of options but the common one is:
Pulse+ to XS, Pulse- to XN
Direction+ to XD, Direction- to XN
