Hello. I am attempting to connect Ekos to TSX to run my Paramount MyT. Everything is newly downloaded and installed today - Kstars and TSX. I followed the instructions here www.indilib.org/devices/telescopes/bisque-paramount.html to set up the connection. TSX is open and connected to the mount and the TCP server is on. In the Ekos INDI control panel, address 127.0.0.1 and port 304 are set and saved. However, when I press connect, it says "ERROR reading from TheSky6 TCP server"
Why does it say 'TheSky6'? Is that why it is not connecting? I'd appreciate any and all input for what to do from here.
Yes, both applications are running on a Mac running 10.13.x. When I look at TSX, the TCP server records an incoming connection request (in the sense that the connection 'counter' on the server pop up window goes up each time I try to connect), but the connection fails.
I tried it with some older copies of TSX, but the same thing happens - "error reading from TheSky6 TCP server" I'm going to reach out to SB and see if they can help with understand what is happening on the TSX end. Is there anything else you can think of? The instructions suggest it should just work. Do I need to be running 10.15.x?
I believe I have figured out the issue. In the TSX preferences (Advanced tab) there is the option 'TCP responses close socket'. For some reason, it was set to 'true'. This seemed undesirable so I set it to false and, just like that, everything seems to be behaving normally. I am now able to connect easily to TSX from the Ekos internal INDI server.
Sure - here you go. You can see the option in question near the bottom of the image, but I wanted to include the words 'Sky Chart' because the preference is in the 'Sky Chart' section of the 'Advanced' preferences tab (for some reason).
While I have you - I'm looking for a tutorial or documentation talking about the use of the SX Adaptive Optics device. I've searched but can not find anything specific to its use in Ekos.
