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.pierro-astro.com/materiel-astronomiq...-orion-sirius_detail


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

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 using EQMac and the EQDirect driver.
Is there an EQdirect equivalent for indi?

Thanks

bye

Dave
