2021-08-30: I re-created this page on my self-hosted web server.

2018-03-08: OctoPi - change hostname (from wiki):

pi@octopi:~ $ grep octopi /etc/hostname /etc/hosts
/etc/hosts: octopi-tingo

then reboot the octopi Pi3.

2018-03-08: OctoPi - test - connected my web browser to http://octopi.local and did setup. It worked. I need to set up correct parameters for slicing profile and printer profile.

2018-03-08: OctoPi - test - booted the Pi3 with the OctoPi card in

[tingo@localhost ~]$ avahi-resolve -n octopi.local


[tingo@localhost ~]$ ssh pi@octopi.local
