This is the same as in T7449 so as I said 99% confidence that this is a permission problem.

alexei changed the edit policy from "Custom Policy" to "Restricted Project (Project)".

@johnson Have them double check their firewall as in T7449

Customer has windows firewall disabled. Has another network firewall. Should I have him modify the local ports localhost port range of 49674 - 49675

Customer got back in touch with us to confirm that he has tried to connect with basically all FW and AV disabled. He said the only FW he still has up only blocks inbound Internet traffic on his network. Also mentioned that he has been able to connect to the Pro previously using the exact same set up. He went to bed one night being able to connect and woke up the next morning not being able to connect so he isn't sure how this would be due to FW. Looking through the log a bit more I noticed a weird error that I have never seen before that occurred several times after the error @alexei listed above and it always seems to result in the socket being closed. I'm not sure if this is the root of the issue but I definitely thought it was worth at least having someone more well versed in this side of things take a look at it.

@Galadriel , The logs that you quoted look normal, just to be sure, did customer upgraded Cura after TAZ Pro setup was working for him and before it stopped working?

@alexei
After it stopped working
His exact words: "Wanted to point out also that until the day I opened this ticket I had been using CURA 3.6.8 to run prints via USB to the Pro.

Nothing was done on/to the PC nor to the Pro overnite but the next day it did not communicate with my PC."

I had customer roll back his Windows Update.

@johnson @TyTh any update on this ticket?

@DaniAO
He was able to use it on the MacOS but never got it figured out for windows

@alexei @karrad We have had another report of a user (reseller) that can't connect with his TAZ Pro on windows 10, but could on a Linux system. He was using Cura 3.6.8 and was on 2.0.101 firmware and was trying to update to .116.

karrad assigned this task to alexei.Jun 27 2019, 11:27 AM

@alexei What other information do you need in order to help diagnose this? We will request whatever we need, just don't know what to ask for.
