Does anyone have any experience hooking up this driver to the MESA 7i96e ethernet board?
I can connect to it but can't get any motion? The driver only have GND ENA CLK and +5V connections.
How do I wire this driver to my MESA card?

Not sure what to do with ENA either connect to 7I96 +5V or leave open...
Is there a manual on the MKS2160?

Are the motors locked? If they are, then the drive is active and working.
If they are not, then I would look at enable more carefully.

What step length did you choose?

Got it working with default settings for 7i76e (Sorry for the error i made with type number) by installing latest LinuxCNC ISO ;)
