serial port access to printer through repetier server

Hi,  is it possible to have a remote program communicate directly with the printers control board via a tcpip connection to the server,  I'm looking at using a config / setup tool, but that wants to talk directly to the usb port on the controller.  I know that the repetier host must do something like this but is the protocol published anywhere?


  • Host uses the server api to communicate. A direct TCP/IP throughput is not implemented yet. Such a throughput is also not always the best idea. Server does not know what you do so all it would do is forward commands and this may even currupt a print running from server or case a clash with some other software doing it the same, duplicate M105 queries. So yes, i think it will come but should be used with care.
  • Thank you, I'll look into using the API.
