Be sure to also update to the latest CamRanger app
Firmware version 10 now enables the CamRanger to send images directly to an FTP Server or print to a DNP Printer without the normally connected tablet/smartphone/computer.
The CamRanger Settings application is required to configure this direct image transfer. The relevant portion of the application is shown to the right. The Share drop down allows you to select "Off", "FTP", or "DNP Printer". If FTP is selected, the URL, Username, and Password for the FTP server can then be entered. The "Set" button will set the CamRanger with the currently selected configuration.
To be able to properly communicate with an FTP Server or DNP printer, the CamRanger must be properly bridged to a WiFi network with Internet access or the WPS-1's WiFi network, respectively. This can be done with CamRanger Settings application as well. If DNP Printing or FTP Server is selected, all images with file sizes less than 5MP will be transferred/printed. Please note that FTP uploads in particularly are rather slow processes and it can be easy to get backed up if shooting rapidly.
Printing to a DNP Printer requires DNP's Wireless Print Server (WPS-1). You can find more information on the WPS-1, including supported printers, directly from DNP: DNP WPS-1.
The LED next to the power LED on the CamRanger will blink to provide basic status information for the FTP Server. A slow steady blink indicates the CamRanger is connected to the CamRanger. A fast blink indicates that an image is being transferred. A single blink followed by two rapid blinks indicates that an error has occurred and the communication or transfer is or was not successful.
Each time the CamRanger is started, if any type of auto sharing is configured, the CamRanger will attempt to start this sharing. So this requires the CamRanger to be properly configured for bridging upon startup.
NOTE: Printing and transferring to an FTP server can still be done within the CamRanger app like normal. This just adds additional, optional functionality.
