Hi all

after having updated to the last version EKOS complains that it cannot connect to the Pulsar2. Server initialization seems to block when launching the generic lx200:
~$ indiserver -vv indi_lx200pulsar2
2017-01-05T08:17:04: startup: indiserver -vv indi_lx200pulsar2 
2017-01-05T08:17:04: Driver indi_lx200pulsar2: pid=31721 rfd=3 wfd=6 efd=7
2017-01-05T08:17:04: listening to port 7624 on fd 4
2017-01-05T08:17:04: Driver indi_lx200pulsar2: sending <getProperties version='1.7'/>
2017-01-05T08:17:04: Driver indi_lx200pulsar2: initializing from pulsar2 device...
2017-01-05T08:17:04: Driver indi_lx200pulsar2: Initializing from Generic LX200 device...

--> Note that I can connect to the mount when I start the lx200 "classic" driver.

Probably related with changes made by Camiel to Pulasr2 code a few days ago.

Indeed, there was a bug in ISGetProperties. I have checked in a bug fix that solved this problem (at least for me).

Great, thanks!

I check the new version as soon as possible, and let you know.

Ok, now the update is implemented, the mount connects (thank you!), but the driver behaviour has deteriorated considerably.
It complains that it cannot set UTC/location, and seems not to communicate (in practice any command fails). Mounts does not unpark, nor slew, nor set new target coordinates... All operations fails so it can't be used :( Do you have the same problems?

Since I use my own development version, I have just checked that the driver from the repository also works with my setup. Slewing, parking, enabling/disabling PEC, pole crossing, refraction correction all work. Do you have a log file?
