Connecting Raspberry Pi 4 Running OctoPrint on Ender 6

What is the problem?

I am trying to connect my Raspberry Pi 4 running OctoPrint to my Ender 6; however, I thought it would just work with everything set to auto on the web interface. Are there specific settings that I should be using for Serial Port and Baudrate?

What did you already try to solve it?

Plugged the micro usb into the port underneath the printer.

Have you tried running in safe mode?

No, I do not know how.

Did running in safe mode solve the problem?

Did not try

Systeminfo Bundle

You can download this in OctoPrint's System Information dialog ... no bundle, no support!)


Additional information about your setup

OctoPrint version, OctoPi version, printer, firmware, browser, operating system, ... as much data as possible


There should be only one serial port available, baudrate should be 115200.
If it's not detecting a serial port, try another usb cable.
You also need this plugin Creality 2x temperature reporting fix to fix the a firmware bug (just install it via the pluginbrowser in the settings menu).

Also remember to turn the printer on before you try to establish a connection.
