Autostart indi with drivers connected to control with SkySafari was created by chrisg71

Hello!

I have a working RPI indi running. Using VNC to connect to the PI and Kstars to start and connect the drivers everything works fine. I also can connect from other machines SkySafari to control the scope.
But I would like to run the PI autonomous. So I can just power it on and connect with SkySafari remotely. No need for imagers etc.
I have the indi web manager running. but it seems it does not connect the drivers. Screenshot is after reboot.

Any help would be appreciated.

So INDI Web manager just "Starts" the driver.. it doesn't connect them. I think we should add a checkbox for that.

That would be excellent! I had asked about this in an earlier thread, but ended up still needing to use vnc/Kstars to get things running. With that I believe this would be a replacement for hardware like SkyFi. Only remaining issue is powering off the RPI when finished using the unit. With nothing running other than the skysafari driver (and the specific scope driver and dummy camera simulator) how resilient is the system to just unplugging it?

Ok I just pushed a change to enable that on Github. I asked Juan also to make it available under pip after some testing.

Resilient? Not at all - the microSD card would likely be corrupted and you would need to make a new image.
