Pete. When you say "Send to the system" I assume you mean that you can successfully send from Computer TO the CNC. and that you are not able to send from the CNC to the computer?

What happens when you try? Do you get anything at all? Garbage? or nothing?
Does the CNC appear to send all the way to the end but nothing arrives on the computer display?
Or does the CNC throw an alarm? (What alarm?)

Hi Support,
You are correct, we can't send trace from the cnc to the computer. It appears to be sending, but nothing is received in remo, It appears to be sending, I don't think any codes are thrown, I'll check again tomorrow and update you.

Sorry for not answering this sooner. I answered the one above yours and just didn't see this new post.

Can you open the cable connectors and check the solder joints? Send and receive use different wires in the cable so if the cable were faulty it could still be possible to send one way but not the other.
