Local Printer Name Not Working, IP address works fine

  • I'm using an Apple Airport wireless network setup and one of my printers works fine with the local name (it is the Duet wifi version).

    The ethernet Duet printer will find the custom MAC address I configured and assign a custom IP address from a reserved list in the router settings, but strangely it doesn't assign a local network name (printername.local never returns anything).

    Am I missing something? This is fairly low priority as I can type in the reserved IP address and it pulls up fine.

    Posting in case someone has solved a similar problem

    Relevant Config copied below:

    **; Communication and general
    M111 S0 ; Debug off
    M550 PPrusaOrange ; Machine name and Netbios name (can be anything you like)
    M551 Preprap ; Machine password (used for FTP)

    ;*** Networking
    M552 S1 ; Turn network on

    ;*** Mac Address
    M540 P0x00:0x00:0x00:0x00:0x07:0x04 ; MAC custom address

    ;*** Ethernet networking: Adjust the IP address and gateway in the following 2 lines to suit your network
    M552 P0.0.0.0 ; (0 = DHCP)
    M554 P192.168.1.255 ; Gateway
    M553 P255.255.255.0 ; Netmask

  • Name resolution is usually handled by a DNS server or local hosts files, have these been updated ?

  • administrators

    I'm sorry, the Duet Ethernet amd Duet Maestro don't (yet) support MDNS.
