Focuslynx/Focus Boss not connecting to MacOS via USB #34815
If you need me to do so, on Tuesday I can hook my Mac up to a Focus Boss and see what all my setting are.

Focuslynx/Focus Boss not connecting to MacOS via USB #34896
Hi Rob,
I though the main problem I had was KStars not recognising my USB-RS232 adapter that Optec/Starlight have been so kind to include with the package.
So I went to FTDI website and downloaded the driver.
Now instead of a generic /dev/cu.usbserial, KStars sees /dev/cu.usbserial-A504AP6U, which is the USB device showing in my Mac's System Information.
Happy as a baby I tried to connect... nothing
TTY timeout
Changed the BAUD rate to all the available ones from 9600 to 230400...nothing
VERY frustrating
I can't get my head around this, but my knowledge of this things is like Shakespeare to an ant...
Log attached
Please, help!
Thank you
Antonio

P.S: maybe a Timeviewer session with you controlling my Mac could be in order, so you can see what's happening...

And once again the thread got dead...

Is anyone able to help me?
The focuser (or lack thereof) is the only thing keeping me from fully automating my sessions.
A little help would be nice to have

Cheers

Antonio

I'm sorry, I've just been very busy. I should be able to help you in about a week or so. I have a lot of things on my plate right now, but in about a week, my time should increase quite a bit.

Thanks,

Rob
