Constant notifications on printers with confirmation code


Recommended Posts

Posted · Constant notifications on printers with confirmation code

We have a fleet of 6 UMS5 machines deployed in our office, and recently we started getting very frequent notifications appearing on the screensstating:
"To confirm the connection with this printer, use code: 123456"


We have a lot of Cura users scattered around our building, so my assumption is that someone (or multiple someones) could be trying to connect these machines to digital factory?  Or perhaps trying to just establish an network connection to them inside Cura?


We have published instructions available listing the IP addresses of each machine so they can add the printers (all 6 of them) to Cura, but in my experience this doesn't require getting a confirmation code from them.


Any thoughts on why this is happening (and how to stop it)?

    Hello jeffroe,


    I have the same issue since few days now with our UMS5 machine.
    By seeing the log on the webserver, I found that the printer often try to connect on Digital Factory :



    I think that we don't really use it so I just deactivated and I will see if this kind of notifications still appears or not.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
