When downloading settings



  • When I try to download my config files such as config.g my browser opens the file like a text file.. I would just like to save it to disc.
    G-chrome and Firefox does the same.. Explorer wont connect to the Duet even with the FW turned off.

    Any tip on how to save the files?

    That does not happen for me, maybe try right click, save as ?



  • Im in the Duet web interface, if I right click on the download icon I get save webpage as…file name xxx.htm. And thats not correct.



  • Tony means right click on page that opens as a text file.

    I can't get to my Duet Web Interface right now but from memory you go to "Settings", then in the "General Tab" there is button to upload a file (not download). That's where you upload things like config.g.

    Currently on the Duet WiFi I think the only option is to open it as a text file, then right click and do Save As in your browser. This problem will be resolved when I do the rewrite of the WiFi server code, which has almost reached the top of my work list.



  • Ok, I did pick it off the sd card for now.
    But if I save it as a " save as" file will it keep the correct formatting for the Duet to read if I upload it later?

    It's just a text file. If you save it as 'config.g' (don't let the browser add the .txt part to the end) you can upload it again and it will work.
