S5 Network Management Issues

Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 Network Management Issues

We have a networked S5 which has recently started having issues with the network connection. Although it is possible to connect to add the printer through Cura and see the status of the current print job in the "Monitor" tab, other functionality is unavailable or unresponsive:


  • The live camera view simply shows a static image.
  • It is not possible to send print jobs over the network: doing so always freezes within Cura at 90–99%.
  • None of the web browser management links (Manage printer/Manage in browser) within Cura work: the URL works but the web page remains permanently loading.


These issues are the same independent of OS (tried both Windows and Mac) and Cura version (5.0 to 5.3.1). It is also independent of the network used: we have tried multiple networks and routers all with the same results.


What is it about the printer configuration that means that this network functionality is having issues? All of these were working until a few months ago and have suddenly started misbehaving. Neither the configuration nor firmware has been changed.

    No joy I'm afraid. Reset Digital Factory AND full printer reset: same issue persists. Updated to the latest stable firmware ( no change.


    The really odd thing is that we have an identical printer sitting right next to it — S5 with material station and air handling unit — that hasn't started having these issues. So we know it's not the network. The only difference is that the camera doesn't work in the second one...

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
