CONFIGURE TSD ACCESS ANYWHERE IN PRINTOID

Printoid v19.00 (published the 07th of February, 2022) embeds a full and native support of TSD Access Anywhere:

  • Easy connection with the app portal
  • Automatic configuration of your OctoPrint profile in the app
  • Secured connection (HTTPS + basic authentication powered by the TSD service)

This can be achieved directly from the onboarding of the app (the first time you open the app and setup your first printer in the app) or later from the OctoPrint Profiles panel.

From the onboarding

There are only few steps to configure your connection to your server with OctoEverywhere:

The app will setup automatically your OctoPrint profile, including:

  • The WAN IP (OctoEverywhere provides a Shared connection URL to the app)
  • The HTTP basic authentication
  • The secured connection (HTTPS)

You’re all done. Now you can connect to your OctoPrint server with Printoid from everywhere!
