Configure OctoEverywhere

OctoEverywhere is a plugin for OctoPrint that allows you to access securely your server over the Internet, from any web browser or any third-party app.

This solution has many advantages:

  • No network configuration to do on your side
  • Secured access to your network over the Internet
  • Transparent integration in Printoid, everything works flawlessly in the app
  • Easy to setup

This is a paid service, since it cost a lot on hosting the servers. The first plan starts at $2.99 (USD) per month only.

IMPORTANT NOTE

The developer of Printoid is not the developer of OctoEverywhere. I do not develop and maintain this service at all.
Please also note that I do not earn anything if you use this service, as a user of Printoid.
Please finally note that I can’t offer you any discount for the OctoEverywhere service, since this is not my service at all.
