As far as the physical connection, you would connect from the MIDI Out port of one keyboard to the MIDI In port of the other. If you want either keyboard to be able to send MIDI to the other, you would connect two MIDI cables as follows:

MOXF MIDI Out —> TYROS MIDI In
TYROS MIDI Out —> MOXF MIDI In

If you want to use either keyboard as a controller— that is, you want to play the keys on that keyboard but you want it to send the MIDI data to another keyboard or module to be sounded rather than being played on the controller keyboard— then be sure to turn the “Local Control” setting to “Off” on the controller keyboard.

However, if you want to be able to split the first keyboard so you can play some keys and have them be sounded but send other keys to another keyboard or module to be sounded then things will be more complicated, in which case you may or may not want to turn Local Control off depending on the capabilities of the first keyboard.
