Skysafari pro 5 with Ekos? #16920
Perhaps this helps:

Ekos:
1. Add Skysafari to your Ekos profile, in the Auxiliary column. The same screen you specify your mount, ccd, and such
2. Start INDI
3. Go to the SkySafari Tab -> Options.
4. Enter the name of your mount into the Active Devices field, click Set, and click SAVE
5. Close the INDI dialog
5. Click Connect button to connect Ekos to INDI server

Skysafari:

Goto the setup for a telescope, and:

1. Choose mount type: Meade LX-200 GPS
2. Enter the IP address for the INDI Server
3. Enter port number: 9624

Click connect.

Cheers!

You will of course need the tablet and device running Ekos to be on the same Wifi network.
