@falkia Thanks, you make it sound possible.
Now let´s see what on earth VPN stands for and how to set it up
I just jumped into something I dislike a lot, configuring things (obviously Duet this time) for networking in hopes of controlling my printer from home (it is at my workshop) and got everything looking great untill tried to use DWC through my phone without wifi. It was soon obvious Dwc works local only if further work is not done.
My question is:
What ways are there awailable to make it possible to control the printer from anywhere? I have read a bit about port forfarding and some are apparently also using remote desktop with an extra computer. I don't want to get another computer, so maybe the only way for me would be port forwarding..?
If other solutions (somewhat easy, I'm not a network config guru) are awailable, I would be happy to hear about them.
oh yes, the tuning... I forgot that again. will try that today.
Last time it said it takes too long, even when trying to tune it.
I got a ton of pins awailable especially on the Duex5. All the "extra" fans and endstops are not in use. How could one be taken into this purpose?
Tried to find answers on this but mostly it was all about ethernet control of the whole printer's power...
I tried to connect my chamber heater in a stylish way but the safety feature of the RRF 1.2.1 kicks in after a couple of secs of trying to get the heater warm and even though it's a fairly compact 2Kw unit it just takes too long for the firmware and related error message is shown on the paneldue and cold it goes.
So enough with cool controls, I'll just use the thermostat of the heater (actually it looks like it can be all the time on 100% for ABS that I allways use) instead and forget controlling it what so ever.
But: It should go off when the print is finished.
How to achieve that? I still would not want to spend days in reconfiguring everything for RRF3 just to get the better chamber heater feats, everything else is just lovely.
Thanks in advance for possible tips!
After the proposed tweaks everything looks great!
Extruder does its job as supposed to.
Will consider updating the firmware just a tad
Oh, those extruder steps etc are from the past, totally forgot to remove then when changing into only one extruder.
Will try with proposed fixes this weekend, thanks!
What I am afraid of in the RRF3 is the changes in the logic of setting things up. I had hard time to get my head arount the more clean Gcode approach of older firmwares and still am far from really knowing what I´m doing so the new tricks look like a proper can of worms
I am rebuilding my old machine with Duet Ethernet and everything starts to be ready but:
I can't get the extruder motor moving. Last time I used the printer there was no problem with extruders that I had 2 that time.
I run an ancient firmware (1.21) because the RRF3 would take too long time to get around.
The problem in a nutshell:
I would like to try to remap the extruder into some other channel (driver 4 for example, I got plenty of drivers because of the Duex5, Y and Z are double motor stages so they are mapped partially on the DUex5 and working perfectly) to try to eliminate the possibility of the driver chip being damaged (allthough it seems unlikely).
When I try to remap the extruder, my tempreature reading goes bonkers, it shows 0.
Basically if I touch the E-motor mapping, things go weirdly wrong, but I can't get the sucker moving with the default mapping (leaving E out of M584 of the config.g).
I am starting to loose my sanity.
Only M584 Y1:2 Z8:9 with M563 P0 D3 H1 gets me correct temp readings and XYZ movement.
If I change the tool definition M563 P0 D3 H1 to M563 P0 D4 H1or anything else, I get the message "G10/ Attempt to set or report...Non-existent tool: 0".
Cables and motor checked, connector brand new and clean.
(Here's a practical way for that btw: "short" the cables of one phase from the connector with a piece of wire and turn the motor by hand- does it gain mechanical resistance with the shorting? If yes, all good. Then do the other phase.)
Here my config.g:

M111 S0 ; Debugging off
G21 ; Work in millimetres
G90 ; Send absolute coordinates...
M83 ; ...but relative extruder moves
M555 P2 ; Set firmware compatibility to look like Marlin

;M557 X15:885 Y15:785 S20 ; Define mesh grid

Any help higly appreciated
True, But there are some weird issues that was hoping to get rid of with the update... The most daunting is that I can't change my tool definitions without the machine stopping from working. Very weird. (can't remember now what exactly didn't work but there was no way to start a print if I tried to reconfigure the tools)
Also now when trying to test it simply by sending G1 E100 F300 from Paneldue results in "trying to extrude without tool selected" allthough I have sent earlier T0 or T1 in the console of Paneldue.
I remember using Bossa some years ago, but have forgotten the process completely and would love to not to get into it again
I have no need for the web control at all, so trying setting it up for this update seems a bit like opening a can of worms...
And the Bossa stuff also is a bit tricky.
