I'm unable to connect to my ZWO EFW Filter Wheel via a localhost connection. All works fine with a remote connection listening to port 7624.

With the EFW Filter wheel direct USB to Laptop connection for localhost connectivity, when I run the indi_asi_wheel driver via the command line the resulting response indicates that the driver is listening on port 7624 like every other drivers does but fails to read everything from the device;

keith@keith-NEON:~$ indiserver -vv indi_asi_wheel
2017-08-06T16:46:40: startup: indiserver -vv indi_asi_wheel
2017-08-06T16:46:40: Driver indi_asi_wheel: pid=6212 rfd=3 wfd=6 efd=7

2017-08-06T16:46:40: Driver indi_asi_wheel: read <setSwitchVector device='EFW' name='DEBUG'

The next line should read name='ACTIVE DEVICE' I believe.

Anyone know how to remedy this?

Hi,

I had same issue with ASI224 and EFW. I just retested the ASI224 and things connected fine local or using INDI Webserver running as USER.

Trying running as root. It should work.
i.e. sudo indiserver -vv indi_asi_wheel

I will be retesting the need for root user on the EFW tomorrow, and can report back then.

Running as Root did not remedy the connection.

Received new device EFW
< EFW >: < CONNECTION >
< EFW >: < DRIVER_INFO >
< EFW >: < DEBUG >
< EFW >: < SIMULATION >
< EFW >: < CONFIG_PROCESS >

Ekos: "Unable to establish:\n+ ASI Wheel\nPlease ensure the device is connected and powered on."

Is it anything to do with the naming somewhere? The new device is found EFW, then it says unable to establish with ASI Wheel

I am still testing. Current results seem REALLY good!

Everything running as a USER and not root. It also seems there is more free ram doing so!

Setup:

1. RPI3
2. Ubuntu-mate 16.04 via the Astroberry image
3. New INDI-web running as user astroberry
4. Kstars and PHD2 running as user astroberry
5. ASI174MM (need to test ASI224 tomorrow)
6. ASI EFW
7. ASI1600MM-cooled
8. CGEM-DX

Will report back more tomorrow.

Cheers!

I hadn't noticed any specific naming difference just the wording EFW and ASI Wheel are used for the same device. FWIW I used the command line efw_initialise utility from ZWO and the filter wheel responds perfectly when connected via USB.
