    Re: Networking Windows 10 to DOS 6.22 on the Milltronics Centurion 6 SBC

    All is working again, in Win 7 Ultimate using TCP/IP.

    The mill saw my Win 7 machine when I ran the net.exe program, it didn't see the Win 10 system.
    I have a drive mapped to the Win 7 system that the mill can read from and my CAM system writes to the same.

    Simply, follow the guide from Milltronics and relax the network group policies on the Win 7 system

    On the Win 7 system I ended up deleting the login for the mill and recreating it which got rid of the error 86 I was getting.
    I also deleted the .pwl files in the \NET directory on the mill
    Be sure to add your Win 7 system to the LMHOSTS and HOSTS files on the machine.

    I was trying off and on between jobs so that's why the long delay between posts.

    This I’m interested in. I just started getting into 3d printing and looking into Raspberry Pi and Octoprint to send files and control the printer. Then I thought hey, I wonder if Pi could hook up to my mill and let me pull programs off my computer through WiFi?
    Running inside, connecting the usb floppy drive to the laptop, copying the file to floppy, then running outside to copy the floppy to the control is getting kinda old.

    Yugami- Could you give some more info on how you set it up on the pi? I'd love to be able to get that running, but I'm not great when it comes to command line stuff in DOS and Linux. I have Pis running my 3d printers and a kiosk at each of my machines already though, so if they can do double duty to network the milltronics it would be amazing.

    Thanks!

    Fair enough. I'm working on getting it either running over serial or networked to a win10 pc per this post, also picked up a USB to floppy adapter. Gotta get files to this thing somehow. So far no luck with any of them. It looks like the RS232 cable inside the machine was modified so I have no idea what pinout to actually use (Tried the one published somewhere on this site, as well as the one that works for my HAAS and Fanuc machines), and the machine is looking for an E:/ drive when I tell it to read from disk- I thought floppies were pretty much always A:/ or B:/ ? It doesn't see any of the files I have on my flash drive. Going to dive in further, but need to get a real keyboard so I can actually navigate properly in DOS.

    To be continued when I don't have ridiculous deadlines. Gotta keep the other machines running. I might just hand-code some stuff at this rate so the milltronics can bore locating pin holes for my carvesmart jaws or do something useful.

    I just push over RS232 currently -- I bought these two things from amazon and use my laptop and the program EdytorNC (free software)

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    The 15 foot and 3 foot respectively. Run under the machine I can hook up about 6 feet away from the door away from the coolant spray.
