[Solved] Which pins should I connect to program a PIC chip using the SNAP programmer?

Jacob Garby Asks: Which pins should I connect to program a PIC chip using the SNAP programmer?
this seems like this question has an obvious answer but despite looking through the datasheet of the PIC MCU I’m going to be using (the PIC18F45K22), and the SNAP programmer user guide, I can’t find the answer.

I want to program the microcontroller using this programmer, but I’m not sure what pins on the chip should connect to which pins on the SNAP. The most relevant information I can find in the user guide is the “ISCP (MCHP)” column in the “Pinouts for Debug Interfaces” table on page 38:


The table

According to this table, it would seem that if I want to program my microcontroller using ICSP (which I believe I do), I would connect pin 1 of the SNAP to MCLR, for example. This I can do. But, where it says to connect pin 6 to AUX I get confused, because nowhere in the datasheet for the microcontroller is such a pin mentioned.

ICSP (MCHP) seems to be the most relevant of all of the columns in that table, so I’m confused as to how the pins don’t seem to match up with what is said in the datasheet.
