Is your octoprint server running on a windows 10 pc?
If yes - we had a similar case a few weeks ago - maybe you got the same problem

server is running on Windows 8

Well it could also be the firewall then.
Read the thread and maybe you can do it the same way :slight_smile:

Hi all

problem solved it was firewall problem in the remote system ( win8 connected to the printer)
not sure why its happen since port 8888 and 8889 work fine with out any adjustments.
you can either open the Firewall port for 8081 and 8082 ports in the firewall interface under control panel, or better option to open "cmd" command window as administrator and run the following command : netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name=L2TP_TCP protocol=TCP localport=8081 action=allow dir=IN
