    Update I have got it to connect. Not sure how but it is. Now the issue is that when I jog the axis it tells me there's "undefined feed rate set" and the motor doesn't move but the numbers on the screen move. Any help?

    Only new at this CNC lark but I had the same problem about a week ago, you need to give a feed rate command, try G1 x1 y1 f50 that should much the gantry a small bit on the x and y axis and you have set the feed rate at 50, if all goes well you can increase the speed higher. Grbl controller will move at the last f rate, you don't need to type f in the command again unless you are changing the feed rate.
