I've spent the last few months getting the obsy to work. I finally got Stephan's Odroid roof driver to work with my DIY roof- many thanks. I've got a Vixen SXW mount, and would like to create a startup script for the obsy.
I would know if it is possible to use 'http://192.168.0.9:80/START' in a bash script, or does anyone has any ideas on how to do this. At the moment, I have to change the state of the mount manually.
I know that this isn't a bash course, but just thought that an idea may come out. I've managed to get my gpios working to turn on and off power etc....
Here wishing one and all a happy new year (in advance) and may 2021 be better stargazing for all.

thanks for you reply. Curl works. I seem to have some strange problem. I've written the simplest of scripts to test my setup...... when I run the script from the command-line, the mount initiates, and starts running. I can then run ekos / kstars, the driver connecting on its own. I can also run the scheduler if the script is run from command-line. If I run the script from within the scheduler, it doesn't run. I have run the chmod +x to make it executable.....
This is the script:
