Sets MatterControl to attempt to connect to a printer over the network instead of through USB.
MatterControl will attempt to connect to the printer using a TCP/IP (Telnet) connection to the specified IP address and port. MatterControl will then stream G-Code to the printer over the connection. If your printer supports Telnet commands, Mattercontrol will try to use them to set the correct baud rate and perform resets.
- Smoothie - See the Smoothie documentation for turning on the Telnet feature.
- Raspberry Pi - If you have a RasPi or other Linux box connected to your printer, you can use this script to set up a rudimentary Telnet server.
- Wi-Fi to serial adapter - You can connect to an ESP8266 based Wi-Fi/Serial adapter running the ESP-Link firmware.
