Hello there,

Just wondering if anyone could help with my problem. I am trying to connect octoprint to cura on my pc. Unlike all other treads and videos I've searched up, most people have octoprint on a raspberry pi, but I'm running my octorprint on the same windows that I'm accessing cura on. I know it might not be possible but if it is, could somone try and explain how to connect my octoprint to my cura.

    You have the IP address as 8.8.8.8.  That can't be right.  That's the address of one of google's dns servers - I happen to know that.

     

    You need to use the actual address or possibly you can use "127.0.0.1" for the "current computer".

     

    You say you have a "pc" so I assume that's windows so open a command window and type "ipconfig".  Somewhere in that mess is your address - typically something like 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x

     

    Don't confuse your computer address with your router (which usually ends in "1" such as 192.168.0.1.  Don't confuse it with your mask which usually has 255 in it somewhere.  Don't confuse it with dns server either (typically 8.8.8.8).
