Problem updating web control firmware



  • Hi,

    I'm trying to update the firmware on my most recent Duet WiFi equipped printer. The main firmware and the web server firmware all updated without issue.

    For this printer the version info from the web page shows the following values:

    Duet Wifi 1.0 or 1.01 + Duex5
    2.0(RTOS) 2018-06-05b3
    1.21
    1.15a

    My other machines are showing:

    Duet Wifi 1.02 or later + Duex5
    2.01BETA(RTOS) 2-18-07-14b5
    1.21
    1.21.1

    So aside from using a slightly later version on the other machines why did the web control version stay at 1.15a?

    I must have done something wrong but it has been quite awhile since I worked on these printers I cannot determine what mistake I made.

    Wasn't it possible to update the web control stuff by uploading the ZIP file?

    That doesn't work on this problem machine - it reports that uploading of ZIP files is not allowed.

    Thanks.

    Frederick

    Older versions of DWC wouldn't let you update DWC over the web on a Duet WiFi, because the web interface was stored on the WiFi module instead. But here are two ways that you can update DWC:

    1. Rename the DuetWebControl-xxx.zip file to DWC.zip and then upload it. Then refresh the page.

    2. If that doesn't work, move the SD card to a PC, clear the /www folder and extract the contents of DuetWebControl-xxx.zip into /www.



  • Hi,

    Thank you for the prompt response.

    The first approach (uploading DWC.ZIP) worked fine.

    Much appreciated.
