Remote access to UM3 API from a web server

Recommended Posts

Posted · Remote access to UM3 API from a web server

Hi community,

 

Did anyone ever tried to access the Ultimaker 3 API from a web server ?

 

On my UM3E I can access the API from local network IP.

But I can only do this when I am on the same WIFI network.

 

I would like to send requests to the API from a website hosted on AWS.

I think I will need to set up some NAT to access the printer from "outside".

 

If some of you have feedbacks and tips on it, I'll be glad to ear.

 

Thanks

Unless you know what you are doing: don't.

 

The UM3 firmware is not designed to be secure enough to face the internet. Unless you want your printer to be controllable by a random script-kiddie, do NOT connect your printer directly to the internet.

Thanks for your answer.

So your recommandation is to have a third part (like a local server) to manage the communication between the website and the UM3 ?

Some sort of VPN solution would be much better than opening up your UM3 to the world. It does not have to be "3rd party".
