Hi Jacobo,
I also tested SM1.7 OS last night, I am using SW AZ GTi mount,
Mount IP address issue same, when I go to port selector, every time it is showing mount's default IP 192.168.4.1. But I am using home router's WIFI.
I tried to save mount's config in Ekos with no success.

West East buttons reversed also happened in my setup. South/North are OK

I believe it is not related with mount type.

regards,
Kemal

I've tested ZWO 178MC with no issue at all.
better to check USB 3.0 port and cable.
I am not using the stock ribbon cable, too long and not looking good for USB 3.0 transfer.

Hi Jay,
I have a similar setup with SW Virtuoso mount, I am using Skywatcher Alt-Az driver. But, I am guessing you need to use SW Alt-AZ-Wedge version.
I made a DIY serial to WIFI adaptor with WEMOS d1 mini pro board.
I managed to connect my mount. it was not easy in the first place but it is working for me.
Mount <-> Serial to WIFI <-> INDI Alt-Az driver
check your IP addresses and port number, default is 192.168.4.1 and UDP port 11880
if you are using your home WIFI, first change WIFI setting in your mount with Skywatcher mobile app.
hope this would help.
regards,
Kemal

Hello Ben,
thanks for your update,
this is explaining why I was successfully connecting from Arduino Serial0
but on teensy serial1 was in my setup

Alain,
you are so right, this is not happening on ArduinoMega2560
I had a ArduinoMega laying araound, and test showed, original driver is working as expected on ArduinoMega

If you want to buy a Teensy go ahead, because it is worth to have one.
But as I know Teensy 3.5/3.6 is on the way (kickstarter.com)

Hello Alain,
my hardware setup is as per below;

OnStep (Teensy3.2) <=> FTDI Serial (ttyUSB0) <=> RaspberryPi2 <=> "indiserver indi_lx200_OnStep" <=> WiFi/Eth <=> Kstars on Win7 PC

regards,

as I said I have changed "lx200driver.cpp" source and now every time I am able to connect without any intervention

I just disable checking condition in "check_lx200_connection" function

//if (nbytes_read == 1)

I know I broke the driver mechanism, and is not working properly, but it worked for me now.
may be this will direct you how to fix it properly

Thank you Alain,
udev rule fixed the serial interface port assignment problem
but this was not my real problem, from beginning I was aware that port name is changing when replugged.

The problem is OnSTep/Indiserver can not handshake but can talk :-)
not only occuring on UbuntuMate, I reproduced the same situation on Raspbian/Jessie
Now, my solution is power off and power on the OnStep hardware just after connecting from indiControl panel :-)
By doing this I am disabling the handshaink process I think.

I will test this by changing check_lx200_connection(int in_fd) function

by the way I am checking indilib source file lx200driver.ccp
there is a function ; check_lx200_connection(int in_fd)
there is a loop in this fuction which is two times checking the connection;

for (i=0; i < 2; i++)
{
if (write(in_fd, ack, 1) < 0) return -1;
tty_read(in_fd, MountAlign, 1, LX200_TIMEOUT, &nbytes_read);
if (nbytes_read == 1)
{
DEBUGDEVICE(lx200Name, INDI::Logger::DBG_DEBUG, "Testing successful!");
return 0;
}
usleep(50000);
}
I will check Onstep command.ino if it is fully compatible with this check conditions.

Hello Jasem,
my usbconverter is FTDI based and shown as per below from lsusb output

Hello Alain,
I have reproduce my problem with frehsly installed rasbian/jessie image.
But I found very odd situation accidentaly;
if I power-off and power-on the OnStep hardware just after pressing connect button from Indi control panel, now I am able to connecting everytime.
I can get the sites information which I uploaded before, and able to guide manually.
I don't know if this info guide you some point, but thaks again for this valueable plugin.
regards,

Kemal
