Can't connect to printer since firmware update

Be careful a rollback to 5.x is not possible!

But it is not true that you cannot use a direct connection with FW 6.1.1. The v6 has an option to ENABLE a firewall if needed and then you can only use DF. When you do nothing and just update, direct connection is possible as before. 

 

I updated both my S5 and my S3 and use both printer as before.

    Please DON'T try to downgrade it! It is not possible, we clearly state this with the release notes! 6.x is based on a different OS version, downgrading will most likely brick your printer!

     

    Wait for 6.1 to be released it will be here *really* soon, try upgrading it will also give some new possibilities to (network) provision your printer.

    Its quite Important Infos about an Firmware update. When its making one unable to downgrade afterwards. This is quite very Apple style.. I would need a Big Red Warning upon updating next time... i hope i didnt brick my machine now.


    - The printing-cloud-way which needs opening my browser is realy not ideal. I like to do everything form cura as it was.

    You shouldn't need to use Digital Factory. I have 6.1 and I can still use my ethernet connection. I believe it is only with the firewall on do you need to use Digital Factory.

    What a bummer:  With 6.0 you can only use the Digital Factory, so you have to send your print jobs through the cloud. A direct connection is not possible anymore.

    i might have to roll back then.  this is a no-go for me.

     

    This is simply not true. Only if you enable the new firewall feature in the printer settings. But it is disabled by default. Ultimaker would never introduce such a large breaking change to user workflows.

    Hmm, that is not the case, you can still use local network (directly print from Cura to your printer) with 6.1.1 

    I sure hope you have discovered this by now 🙂

    Nope, only with the firewall on. Firewall off actually still has the firewall but unblocks local website and API.
