Is anyone else running Octoprint underneath VmWare?
I'm currently running into some serial connection timeout issues within octoprint. Looking at other related posts and the sticky, I'm inclined to believe this is a communication issue being caused by the USB being passed through to a VM potentially being occasionally interrupted.
I've set up OctoPrint on my underutilized ESXI server due to it's close proximity to the printer. I've accomplished this by building up a dedicated Rasbian VM from scratch. I'm not overly attached to running octoprint in this manner but was hoping to avoid the costs of a pi+alloy case and having to find a place to mount and route the cables for the PI.
I'm currently planning on testing the tweak that forces the USB speed down but hesitating as it seems like it would effect the ability to connect a webcam via Octoprint.
