How do I hook up inputs( what pins) to the motor shield I have? The motor shield has 6 inputs ( enable A,B, A,a B,b)for control and I have two outputs(step/dir) what am I missing?
Read the documentation for your motor drive shield and stepper motor, they will explain how to use them. You will probably find example sketches that demonstrate this too. This is the easy part. I'm not going to do it for you because you can read a data sheet just as easily as I can, and you're the one who wants to get it working.
