Can i connect Duet to the internet?



  • Hi guys,

    I have a Duet ethernet board and now it is connected through LAN. Now i want to use WAN connection such that i can operate outside of my LAN area ( if I am in my home I can control using wifi and if I am outside I am unable to connect so I want to connect from outside. Please help me in this).

    You need to think very carefully about how you will secure your Duet from unauthorised access. The recommended approach is to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN). Some modern routers have the option to configure a VPN.



  • First of all, if you have any devices that produce heat internally or externally (hotend, heatbed, laser, spindle etc.) then it's not a good idea to leave the machine unattended. Yesterday my hotend heated to about 380 degrees because a faulty thermistor connection caused increased resistance, and bad measured temperatures.

    If we put that aside, then you need to have either a VPN set up, or IP filtering
