Sorry, I probably wasn't clear about what I'd like to do. I'd like to have an automatic process that sends settings to my focuser in the boot process.

I was thinking about adding something in crontab, so when I boot the AstoBerry it will start the INDI server, then pass the settings with indi_setptop. My concern is if I add a crontab line running a script with the indi_setprop command and parameters and the INDI server has not started yet, then the settings will not apply ?

I guess I'm asking is there a way to boot up the AstroBerry server and after the INDI server is running, somehow automatically run something (a shell script?) that sends settings to a device?

Hope this is clear, sorry for the confusion.
Thank You.
