Darren, you have to set your DST to off in the HC of the mount, prior to connecting it to Ekos/Kstars, otherwise it would not have any effect.

I confirm the described issue also for an iOptron iEQ30 Pro mount. If the mount has DST on, after connecting it to Ekos, it will slew away from the target 1h east in RA.

Jasem's solution is correct, disabling DST in the mount will make it slew right where it is supposed to.
