There are 4 pins on the board labeled TX, RX, Vcc and Gnd. Connect them to pins of the same names on the Arduino.

Mate you couldn't be more wrong... The RX on one should be the TX on the other and vice versa. The Vcc are ok.... My question was how does one actually connect the hardware - is it via breadboard with resistors on it or just straight wiring - etc ?
