Subject: Finding the PV for a specific device?

Hello,

I'm just starting to use EPICS and am running into a bit of an issue. I've got an Aerotech Ensemble stage connected to my computer via ethernet. I want to be able to interface with it through EPICS. How do I find out what the PV is that I need to give to EPICS? Does EPICS just search for ethernet devices and assign PVs? If so, how do I retrieve that information?

I've asked this question of a few people now and no one has been able to give me a useful answer, so perhaps I have been phrasing it incorrectly. Maybe a better way is, if you connected a new Aerotech stage to your computer, could you walk me through the steps you would take to make it move using EPICS?

Thanks,
