Can I set up 2nd octoprint on a second Pi under same network?

What is the problem?
Just an inquiry can I set up 2nd octoprint on a second Pi under same network?

What did you already try to solve it?
I googled for my answer it seems there are resources to teach me how to set up multiple instances of octoprint using one pi. I want to run a second printer in my basement, and I have second raspberry pi.
Just wondering if this is possible? Is this possible? what is the catch?

Logs (octoprint.log, serial.log or output on terminal tab, ...)

Additional information about your setup (OctoPrint version, OctoPi version, printer, firmware, ...)
Running latest prusa i3 mk3s firmware and octprint firmware

ok i had my second pi hooked and octiprint configure.

It seems like with a second IP i can toggle between different IP and have two pi pritning at the same time.


No problem doing what you propose. You have identified the Key- two different IP's. I have this setup.

Off topic: It is also possible, but a lot of work, to setup two instances of Octopi on one raspberrypi to run two printers from one pi. However, I used two pi's so that I have the freedom to move one of them to a different physical location.

I completely agree with you.

I see the value of doing two instances on one pi, there are great tutorial for that. Having the mobility to move the printer around the house is nice :slight_smile: .

Why not change the hostname's for each one?

sudo raspi-config

Didn't know the linux command to do that. I am dangerous now.

It's more of a Raspberry PI OS command :slight_smile:
