Someone/Something Trying to Connect to my S5

Posted · Someone/Something Trying to Connect to my S5

My Ultimaker S5 keeps displaying the message "To confirm the connection with this printer, use code: XXXXXX", repeatedly throughout the day. It seems to happen every hour or so. The printer is not attached to Digital Factory, only used locally, although it was once connected to DF (I disconnected it because it didn't work well for me). I am the only one on site here and the only person with access to our local net, so I know the connection request is not coming from here. I also know that if I block the printer's internet access at my router, the message stops popping up. That seems to suggest that someone else is trying to connect it to their digital factory, at least to me. Has anyone else had this issue? Does anyone know how to stop it without blocking the printer from the internet (which causes other issues)? Thanks!

    Because it was once connected, it's trying to reconnect.

    You will need to do a Digital Factory Reset to clear the status. 
    (Note: this will also clear your print history on the machine itself, but will not reset things like xy or lift switch calibrations)

    It is also not really possible to remotely request the machine to join Digital Factory, that is done from the touch screen.

    Thanks very much for the help, Dustin. I did the Digital Factory Reset, as you suggested, along with a machine reboot, just because, and so far no recurrence.  I appreciate the information.

      • 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
