I have not been able to move my mount using Ekos commands even though Ekos shows it (CEM120) as being connected. I have it connected via HC using converter to USB plugged into Stellarmate. My mount has wifi and LAN too but not sure if those are options to connect via SM either. If anyone has connected their SM to iOptron mount I would like to know how.
Thanks. I tried connecting from the r232 on mount to usb converter to SM and it wont recognize unless i connect via HC so i must still be doing something wrong. Yes it was unparked, etc. Not sure why ethernet from mount to SM wont connect either. I have heard some connect mount to SM via the mounts Wifi but that does not sound right either.
I connect to my iEQ45 Pro through the RS232 serial port, not through the hand controller. Of all the problems I've had to work through with SM, that's one I never ran into, SM has always connected to my mount right away, been very stable, and controls the mount perfectly from Kstars planetarium or from Ekos. It could also be the serial to USB interface cable - some/many are not compatible with mounts or astronomy software. Mine has a Prolific brand chip set.

Hi. I'm hoping that the appropriate driver was downloaded with the KStars MacOS release from the INDI website. From the INDI Control Panel: indi_ieq_telescope Ver 1.8 Interface 5.
I'm happy to provide any other information that would help.
The CEM120 needs a different driver (talking Protocol 3.0) than the smaller ones (Protocol 2.5).
So you'd need the indi_ioptronv3_telescope driver. While command sets are quite similar and you likely can connect, especially the get position one is different, which will make operation fail.

Alas, unlike the original poster, I have an iOptron IEQ45 GTN, the model just prior to the Pro. It has the RS232 port rather than the USB. I'm using an RS232/USB convertor with what I believe is a Prolific chip. Sorry for causing confusion!!
