The Lulzbot will be automatically connected, and you should see the live temperatures of the extruder and bed.

Load your GCODE file using the Upload button. Once your GCODE file is uploaded it will show in the file list. If there's no other files it'll preload your GCODE file ready for printing. Otherwise press the load button to make it the active file:
