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 created by the use of SSH to modify your printer.
The MakerGear's onboard 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 MakerGear printers ship with SSH disabled. You will need to enable SSH through Octoprint.
Open the Settings in Octoprint (Wrench Icon)
Open the MakerGear Setup menu.
Check the box next to "Advanced Options"
Open the "SSH Access" Tab
Click the "Turn SSH On" button
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
You can use any SSH terminal application like Putty, Chrome SSH, or the Mac Terminal.
MAC terminal: Open the terminal and type: ssh pi@m3printerXXXXX | Your password is the serial number.
MAC terminal: Open the terminal and type: ssh pi@u1printerXXXXX | Your password is the serial number
We recommend that you change your password via the 'passwd' command once you log in. Make sure you remember your password, as there is no easy way to reset it if lost.
