In README.md it says "First point your bridge at your laptop". How does one do this?

Cheers.

Is there any where I can find out how to do this? as remote.bergcloud.com is down at the moment.

I would love to know how to get the new firmware. I don't care if I brick the bridge since I'll be tossing it if I can't revive it.

An update would be nice. I'm a programmer so just knowing the first steps would be nice.

Ok, my intention was to roll out the new Bridge software to everyone... but I'm having trouble understanding how to get the Bridge update servers to do a bulk update. I'll be able to figure it out, it'll just take me some more time.

But I want you all to be able to use this ahead of me figuring that out. So I can manually get you the software if I can get the MAC address of your Bridge.

There are instructions to find the MAC address on the old troubleshooting page -- go down to the header "I’ve plugged in the Bridge, and the ethernet light is flashing constantly" and there are instructions about using software called Bonjour Browser and some alternatives. Get the MAC address and let me know. (Here? Or does github have a private message function? I don't know tbh)

After I've added your MAC address to the update servers, the process is:

  • Power cycle the Bridge, and wait some minutes for the update to run. Cross fingers it doesn't get bricked
  • Use Bonjour Browser (or equiv) to find the local IP of your Bridge
  • Go to the URL (local IP):81/configure

From there you're dropped into step 2 of the Updating the Bridge instructions.

you can then either point your Bridge at my alpha server, or download the code and install it on your own server.

@sfcgeorge have flagged that MAC address for an update -- this is the first time I've used this particular bit of the system, so I hope it works!

It worked! I got to the /configure page, logged in as per updating the bridge instructions on the wiki. Changing then endpoint isn't working for me, it keeps going back to berg. But remote and bergcloud seem to be working so that's nice for now.

Hi Matt, can you add in my mac address please: 40:d8:55:01:cd:fd

This is the first time I've plugged my little printer in for a few months, and I'm no longer getting the 'upstream' light turn on (all others are solid white). Is this because the Bergcloud services are finally turned off or do I have another issue?

Thanks for your hard work keeping this going!

@interlock done!

tbh I'm happy doing this manually right now, it's nice to have a little contact with folks giving this a go! Going to tackle the automation question after the next focus (which is to pretty up alpha and add a couple of mini features). I say focus like this is a big deal, it's all background work for me still I'm afraid

Many thanks @genmon - all working locally, think there may be a db glitch at the moment with alpha.littleprinter as it's giving Internal Server Error when I try to sign in. Thanks for continuing to support this!

Hi there,
Our MAC address is 40-D8-55-19-77-8F.
If this service still exists, would it be possible to add our printer to the server?
Thanks.

I also just got a Memobird, so I think I'm finally going to sell the Little Printer. We've been through a lot together, but it's time. If anyone wants to make an offer just let me know.

One caveat: the config page on the Berg Bridge stopped responding a while ago, so I don't think it's possible to change the IP address pointing to the Sirius server (unless you want to be brave and try to re-flash the firmware on the Bridge.) So don't make an offer unless you can make it work on your LAN with a Sirius server at 192.168.0.99.

:-(

@johndietrich, i would buy yours at a reasonable price as i've successfully been able to do a firmware flash on a couple of others. please contact me at msmabry at gmail to discuss.

i've procured a memobird as well, and i think it's quite nice, but i worry that their server will one day go away just as berg's did.

at least w/ the little printers, i now have hacked together a viable personal server that seems somewhat stable.

Hello everyone,

I'm late to this game as I had all but given up on little printer, but every time I look at it in my box of "junk" it breaks my heart. Is there anyone on here who is still successfully using theirs? If so, how can I join you all? I don't know bugger all about computers or code so any simple help would be so amazing!

Cheers!

Hello everyone!

I share a studio with @benpawle and we've got an update re the little printer bridge over on this thread >> next door. We've published full instructions on how to flash your bridge so that it points to a new server. Alternatively I am offering to do this for £55 (exc return postage).. More info on the other thread, or email me directly at: tom_hatton@outlook(dot)com for further info and to arrange postage / collection!

Since August the guys have been perfecting dithering patterns and its now possible to send images through their new app. Soon to be released... !
