Duet 3 MB6HC Static IP?



  • Hi there,
    This is my first time using any Duet3d products, and it's been quite a ride so far.

    Right now, I'm trying to get my duet web control to exist on a static IP, so I won't have to look it up each time I want to print something. I'm using the Duet3 MB-HC, with a raspberry pi 3 which is using the micro SD card that came with the Duet3. I'm connected via ethernet, and I can't figure out where to go in order to set this up.

    I've looked everywhere I can think of in DWC, and can't find anything relevant. I found some suggestions for setting this up in the Gcode documentation, but those settings all appeared to be for wifi, and it looked like those Gcode commands are more for a Duet2 wifi or maybe a Duet3 board running in standalone mode.

    I thought I might be able to ssh into the rpi, but I can't figure out what the username/password would be.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for how I might go about setting up a static IP on a Duet3 MB-HC that's interfaced through a raspberry pi?

    Additionally, I have a couple of suggestions for the documentation on this board that I thought might be helpful - where would I go to make those suggestions?

    you only use the networking on the rPi, and can configure a static ip in dhcpcd.conf (communications between rPi and Duet3 is only over SPI and the GPIO header)

    I see, thanks! Is there any way I can ssh into the rpi and configure from there?

    I'd prefer to avoid having to connect an HDMI cable and keyboard to get into the rPi if possible.

    Essentially, I'd just need to figure out the default username/password on the rPi (as far as I know, since it's a linux based system) - is there anywhere I could find that info?

    you try ssh to duet3 or duet3.local depending on what your network/client supports. without a dhcp server you'll have to have mdns support working.

    its raspbian defaults user piand password raspberry



  • One of the reasons a Pi was chosen for the Single Board Computer for Duet 3 is because there is so much Pi help available on the internet. Do search beyond Duet documentation.

    Default password? Google "Raspberry Pi default password"

    Static IP? Google "Raspberry Pi static IP address"

    Safe (secure) reverse proxy to reach the Pi from the internet? ...You get the idea... 99.9% of the time, regular Pi stuff will work.
