Paramount MyT connects to Ekos but not to PHD2? was created by airscott

Trying to use PHD2 to guide Paramount MyT under Ubuntu 18.04, KStars 3.0.0.

Of course I have TheSkyX running first, with IP server port 3040.

INDI and Ekos can then see and control the mount, slew, image, etc.

But I can't get PHD2 to connect to the mount at all, either through INDI or through AUX Mount (ports 7624 and 3040).

All I get is a "connection timeout" message, and then "Failed to connect to mount."

Also, I'm trying to guide using "Direct Guide" not relays on the mount.

Perhaps I'm confused as to whether PHD2 is controlling the mount via Ekos/INDI (port 7624), or via port 3040 to TheSkyX, or both?

Can anybody help with this?

PHD2 INDI connection goes through port 7624. After selecting INDI Mount, Click the settings button to the left of the Connect button to connect to INDI, select the MyT etc... You can even use the INDI button to launch the INDI control panel. Once the MyT has been selected for the first time, PHD2 will remember that
