Connect the printer to your network (wired or wireless).
Use the ideamaker to show you the IP address of the printer when you click the connect button.
Use a terminal such as Putty www.putty.org/
Simply enter the IP address and use SSH protocol
It will connect and prompt like so:
login as:
you type root and hit enter
There is no password by default- hence why we need to fix that!!
now you should see this
root@imx6qdlsolo:~#
type passwd (notice the spelling!!!!)
This then promts for a new password
Type your new password
it asks to confirm so type it again
DONE!!!
Same as seen here www.wikihow.com/…/-the-Root-Password-in-Linux
100% validated I can still upload using Ideamaker, still print, still connect.
