Klipper TCP/IP connection
Hallo, I hawe 2 printers running Klipper, they have both its own raspberry with klipper software, on the same network. Repetier server is running on its own raspberry. Printer are not close to each other, I dont want instal klipper on repieter server raspi. But I am not possible to connect printers to repetier server using TCP/IP. Is it possible?
socat TCP-LISTEN:8888,fork,reuseaddr FILE:/dev/pts/1,b57600,rawwould map /dev/pts/1 to port 8888. I think this version even survices reconnects,
With that installed on the klipper PCs you can connect Repetier-Server to that tcp port instead of serial.
This solution has one drawback - the network connection must be ultra stable so best use ethernet and not wifi! This also improves speed as you already get extra delays from network to klipper. That is main reason you normally pur server on same pi as klipper to have no network issues. You could then use Repetier-Server Monitor to show both in one ui.
It is possible to install server without your image?
So while you can install our server on that image you need to stop the fluid backend when it runs.
