Need a easy setup to put static IP address on the printer on wired

Recommended Posts

There is not an easy way to do this, the workaround requires enabling the developer mode (this makes the printer very insecure).

And then using the Linux command line, here is some guide for using connman to do this: https://communities.intel.com/thread/60242

There are some more people struggling with this though: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/50136-configuring-static-ip-address-for-wifi-connection or https://ultimaker.com/en/community/27035-how-to-set-ip-address-without-wifi-or-dhcp

So please consider if configuring a static DHCP lease is an option instead.

I wanted to do this without using DHCP but eventually when I tried the DHCP method I was like "well that was easy!  I should have tried that first!".


Having said that - if you don't know linux maybe it's time to learn a little?  Maybe not.


I agree that it would be great if you could set the IP address from the control panel.

I need to put an static IP address on a Ultimaker 3 extended. We are using this machine on a special network in my company so i can't play with the DHCP.

I try to start the wifi setup to get the hotspot of the printer then I go in with SSH, I edit the /etc/network/interfaces file but nothing change. The printer take the APIPA address (169.254). 

Can someone help me ? 

Thanks a lot

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
