    Hi, have you solved the issue? I am facing the same problem, my octoprint cannot connect to Ultimaker s5.



    You cannot connect Octoprint to the S5, because the S5 has no "normal" USB port as the UM2 has. The USB port on the S5 on the front is only for the USB stick, but not for direct printing via USB.

    The original post was from a user with an Anet printer, which is compatible with OctoPrint. Installing the OctoPrint Connection plugin from the Marketplace would fix their problem. The Ultimaker S5 is not compatible with OctoPrint. Installing the aforementioned plugin will not change that.
