I have used my MacBook and Lightburn for the past year with no problems. I done some updates both on OS and Lightburn. I am currently running OS 12.5 Monterey and LightBurn 1.2.01. I have had problems with communicating to my laser which is an OMtech with the Ruida controller. Sometimes it will work just fine and some not. Now It isn.t working again. I can ping the address which shows it is communicating but Lightburn says it is disconnected.
I downloaded Lightburn to my wife’s Windows PC and Lightburn is communicating with my laser. So why is my MacBook not communicating? I would just use the PC but I have a lot of files on the Mac.
I think there is some issue with the Mac and the UDP that the Ruida speaks…
UDP is part of the internet protocol suite, but like, IP it’s ‘connectionless’, sometimes referred to as a ‘stateless protocol’ it has no way to tell where it is in the ‘conversation’ since it doesn’t remember it’s state or if the device actually exists.
Implementation of UDP is much more simple to implement than ‘networks’ we are used to. I don’t know exactly what they did, but it really seems to help dependability. From a direct connect, to the Lightburn bridge I have less file transfer failures.
No I mean my Mac. I haven’t upgraded to the latest version of the software.
But I’m having the same issue here. I will plug it in Ethernet and it will recognize the laser and then I’ll unplug it change to a different file or something and then plug it in maybe 10mins later and it will say disconnected
I think have to plug, unplug,plug, turn off, unplug, plug etc until it finally recognizes it again.
It’s incredibly frustrating and time consuming so I was trying to see if he found a solution.
