Hi all,
I am new to Indi and I am trying to use it to control an EQ-G mount from a raspberry pi using this cable www.telescopes-et-accessoires.fr/interfa...5-neq5-3-c2x30317625

When I try launching these commands

indiserver -v indi_eqmod_telescope

or

indiserver -v indi_synscan_telescope

I get the following output:
indiserver -v indi_eqmod_telescope
2022-06-04T20:22:40: startup: indiserver -v indi_eqmod_telescope

2022-06-04T20:26:25: Driver indi_synscan_telescope: snooping on Dome Simulator.DOME_SHUTTER

It looks like indiserver is connecting to a simulator in both cases. Is it the case?
What makes me think this is the case is that the output does not change when I run the command when the mount is disconnected or off.
Any idea of how to debug this?
I am able to control the mount when I connect it to my macbook with EqMac and the EQDirect driver.
Is there an equivalent of EQdirect for Indiserver?

thanks

bye
