INDI Library v1.7.6 Released. (27 Feb 2019)

First release of 2019 comes with quite a few new drivers across the board along with significant performance improvements to INDI camera and live streaming performance. Many drivers received significant updates to improve performance & stability, while a few were re-written from scratch to be in line with INDI standards. Here are some of the highlights:

Network issues!! was created by AstronomerDaz

So, I WAS able to connect my astroberry server to my WLAN and remote onto it via the browser.... (note, was!!)

I decided to try and get the VAP working so I could connect in the field, and this is where it all went wrong!! I was not able to connect to the RPi at all using the 'astroberry' VAP, although my Ubuntu client 'seemed' to connect and receive an IP address. No matter what I tried (browser, VNC) I could not connect.

So, I went back to my WLAN to try and figure things out, and now the RPi won't connect to the WLAN at all... I've tried a static IP address, but that didn't work and now I get a "No DHCPOFFERS received" message when I restart the wlan0 interface! I can only access by plugging into the device with screen/keyboard/mouse, I can't remote to it at all...

The wpa_supplicant file shows the network correctly, and I have even deleted the entry and redone the wlanconf but still no joy!

Any thoughts??

I really don't want to rebuild if I can get away with it....

Thanks!

This happened to me a lot in the beginning but the mistakes were my own. I just installed a new image on the sd card and tried again. Each time I make a successful change I make a backup image so I can revert to that after my next mistake without losing previous work.

Cheers,

Stephen

The network 'utils' on astrob wern't good. I never understood what was going on - it would ask me for my network and always said - already listed.
I tried to figure out what was going on. I dug around and yes, checked out and edited the wpa_supplicant file too. It would connect to my 2G and I
wanted it to connect to 5G. I tried lan and wifi and it was dog slow so I gave up. (my mint networking was SO MUCH BETTER) . I understand
keeping the astroberry as a minimal config is a necessity... but I still needs proper utils. I bought the Stellarmate today and it has MUCH better networking tools.
Chrome already installed, other necessary links for updates. I like it a lot more. Worth the 49 bucks even if you have astroberry. Give it a go.

Hi Ron
My issues were my own too! I was ignoring the capitalisation in my SSID name! Once corrected, it was all good!
I'll stick with 'berry for now, but good luck with your Stellarmate!
