 Choose Next when you are done.  A final box will appear confirming the device has been added successfully, click on Done.  Repeat these steps for all necessary devices.

 Associate the IMA6 to the Serial Port
  To setup your IMA6 for control, select Device Control from the drop down.  Then select Serial (selected by default).
  The available devices associated with the selected control type will be listed.
  Drag and drop the IMA6 into the proper port based on whether the IMA6 is plugged in to the IMS directly or to an SCK (USB to serial connection)
  Once the IMA6 has been dragged into the proper port and the system physically detects the connection, the Plug icon will now show connected.
