Do you have any other MIDI devices to plug in to the iConnect to see if they produce MIDI In the log? No. unless the builtin “Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth” builtin In windows counts?

 Is the iConnect checked in the Connections tab?    Also because my pedal has a Micro USB i am connecting it with the basic iconnect  micro usb to usb cable so it’s not showing as iconnect through rtpmidi it’s showing as my laptop name and The pedal is visible in live routing as is the Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth
Sorry, let's clarify here. Are you connecting the iPad directly to the iConnectivity device and connecting your pedal to that, or rather using rtpMIDI and Live Routing? I think that connecting iPad directly would be easier to figure out.

iPad or iPhone, same same
Still, To connect to my iPhone with lightning cable With micro USB which I have as one cables provided by Iconnect. When I plug into the iPhone directly MD Freezes on its welcome page
Here is what I think Dan,
I have to go back to the pedal manufacturer and the controller manufacturer to determine whether or not the device has ability to be read in MIDI Designer - it’s quite possible that it’s their limitation and not one of MD. The only bad news I have for you is that i’ll be back.
There are several ways to go at the same time. For one thing, it's possible that sysex gets filtered by rtpMIDI so that might not work. Any other MIDI device (including sending a message with midiOx perhaps) would help troubleshoot that route with normal MIDI messages. On the other hand, the lightning connector for iOS would be a great thing to test, particularly this one:

that plus a cheap MIDI keyboard and you can see what's broken. Might lead you to other things like a keyboard career too
