Need help with JMRI & WiThrottle on a Mac

I had it running, but need to change computers and can't get it to work on the new Mac. Instructions are too techical and I don't understand.

Is there someone here that can help me?

Thanks!!

Mac user here (I can solve most folks' Mac problems).

I use JMRI in conjunction with a Roco z21 dcc controller and companion TP Link router (connecting via wifi). It works well enough for me.

What is "WiThrottle"?
What kind of dcc hardware are you using?

Apparently the first install of the driver for the USB interface did not work. I reinstalled and it works. Took me hours of going over everything. Very frustrating.

I appreciate your willingness to help.

Thanks!

WiThrottle is an app for a phone and iPad that works with JMRI for throttle control

RE:

OK... you might also try the free Roco z21 app. Costs nothing.
You can find it at the App Store or on Google Play -- enter "roco z21" as a search string. The app you want has a blue background with a red engine.

No promises that it will work, but again, it's free to try.
