Jasem merged the PR from James.

So I updated from Jasem's repo, then compiled it and testing now over WiFi.
There are no timeouts.

One very important and confusing change: there is no way to change the connection at all since all the fields are missing now.

Here is a screenshot to better show what the issue actually is.

Khalid,

unfortunately this missing fields are not OnStep related. Did you try again after restarting Kstars.
I observe the same using Eqmod.
And it is not reproducible, sometimes yes sometimes no ...

Yes, now that I tried a couple of times, the connection info is shown and can be changed.

I guess we need to report this to Jasem, so it is fixed before the next packages are built. Right?

I suppose yes.
I noticed this some time before .
The strange thing is I cannot find a rule to reproduce it.

I believe I found and fixed this issue, please test KStars from GIT or nightly.

The "telescope connection disappearing" issue is in KStars, not INDI?

@Khalid,

since Kstars is the client and it is up to the client to display properties it is likely the client that makes things like that.
This is why I use sometimes CDC to check if behavior is the same as in Kstars.
I just compiled Kstars Version 3.5.7 Beta Build: 2021-12-05T21:27:06Z and the bug is closed

Excellent.
Thanks Alain for explaining how the bug is manifested/expressed.
Thanks Jasem for fixing it.

I hope that stable packages are built in the coming couple of weeks or so.

It seems someone try to use Bluetooth as the main connection between OnStep and Computer.
Obviously it does not work correctly.
Does somebody use Bluetooth with success?
Have a look on this issue

Yes i have on my MicroScope project. RaspberryPi Indi server connecting to OnStep via bluetooth.

I followed the steps under the "bluetooth" heading of this instrucable.
www.instructables.com/The-Micro-Scope-a-...ture-GOTO-Telescope/

I will look at that thread to see if it will help them.
