Stellarmate/PHD2 #55855
Hi all,
I'm almost done with my new setup: stellarmate on rpi4, running Kstars on windows laptop. I'm trying to connect to PHD2 and I get the following:

2020-06-20T00:15:03 The connection was refused by the peer. Make sure the PHD2 is running, and check that the host name and port settings are correct.
2020-06-20T00:14:58 Connecting to PHD2 Host: stellarmate.local, on port 4,400. . .

After a few other glitches that seem to be resolved [fingers crossed] everything seems to be working now. What additional info can I provide to get some help diagnosing this issue? I should mention that PHD2 is launched on stellarmate before I try to connect.
Thanks,

bump - Also note that from PHD2, I can connect to the devices. But from EKOS, nothing happens when I click the connect button (regardless of whether I've connected to the devices or not have been connected in PHD2.

Also, now that I've upgraded to a pi4, I'm very impressed with the capability of the pi - Kstars runs quite well. So - how do I use PHD2 when running Kstars directly on the pi? I tried to setup PHD2 this way and it couldn't find any of my INDI devices.

Thanks

Hi,
Did you check your firewall rules for kstars. I had this problem and simply add kstars in my firewall rules (windows 10).
The other solution is to use kstars and phd2 in your rpi4.
