Log into your M3's computer remotely.
WARNING: SSH Remote Access is only meant for advanced users. MakerGear is not responsible for any problems or damage to the M3 created by the use of SSH to modify your M3.
The MakerGear M3's on-board computer is a Linux based Raspberry Pi. You can use SSH to log into the computer and make a variety of adjustments or make repairs to damaged installations.
By default all new M3s ship with SSH disabled. You will need to enable SSH through Octoprint.
Open the Settings in Octoprint (Wrench Icon)
Open the MakerGear Settings.
Check the box next to "Advanced Options"
Click 'Enable SSH'
A pop-up will tell you that SSH is enabled
Host: The IP or Hostname that you use to connect to your printer normally
Password: your serial number, all letters capitalized
MAC terminal: Open the terminal and type: ssh pi@m3printerXXXXX.local. Your password is the serial number.
We recommend that you change your password via the 'passwd' command once you login. Make sure you remember your printer, as there is no way to reset it if lost.
