Please if someone could help me with some instructions , driver etc how to connect printer with PC (ofxourse I pluggeg ethernet cable both in computer and printer) but can't find printer in control panel.
I am using Win 10.
Thank you in advance.
When i started also with this machine it took me some time, so here is the procedure for direct ethernet and wifi configuration.
first you must do a backup of your sd card with Win32DiskImager and a pc. look on internet for this.
then go download Notepad++ , will be used to modify settings in your sd card config.
in your SD card look for octopi-network.txt and open it with notepad++
according to your security, use the WAP/WAP2 or WEP block aand then remove in front of each line the SINGLE #
enter the SSID and password between the quotes. Care SSID must match the real SSID of your router.
EG: i have WAP secure wifi with SSID= HomeWIFI and passowrd as = notyourbusiness.
it will look like this:
## WPA/WPA2 secured
iface wlan0-octopi inet manual
KEEP the " " for ssid and pass...
simple connection without internet access for the machine.
look fo this at the bottom of octopi-network.txt
#iface eth0:1 inet static
# address 192.168.250.1
# netmask 255.255.255.0
# broadcast 192.168.250.255
Change fix IP address and netmask.
remove the # for every lines
the rest is not important at the moment.
it will look like this.
iface eth0:1 inet static
address 10.10.10.5 Machine new IP
netmask 255.255.255.0 MAchine new mask
#broadcast 192.168.250.255 do not remove the # for this line.
save the modifyed octopi-network.txt.
replace theSD card in the PI3.
power the machine and wait few seconds.
on the computer you use to connect with the machine,
go to the ethernet / properties
open Internet Protocol Version 4
enter new fix IP for computer following the Machine IP format 10.10.10.2
then Subnet Mask as 255.255.255.0
now plug the ethernet cable
Use mozzilla browser or opera, then type 10.10.10.5:9091
and you will access yout Photonic machine.
in your router find the IP of your machine wifi, and you can connect with wifi as well.
