Patch Cord Problem?

I’ve just started with some Max tutorials yesterday, so forgive my ignorance. The tuts suggest that I can “connect the two boxes by clicking on the outlet of the message box, dragging the mouse to the inlet of the print object, then releasing the mouse button” however this does not work as suggested. When I drag the cursor over the outlet a red ring appears and clicking opens a window with Attributes, Messages and Actions. What’s going on?

you are probably clicking the inlet first, click and hold from the outlet drag then let go at the inlet.

This is not the case. This occurs for both inlets and outlets.

Yeah, you seem to be clicking from the top of an object, you need to click from the bottom and drag out.
