I played with timeout settings post that and almost reverted to initial settings and it started working .
I may have figured out why my mount was not responding earlier because my desktop had address 192.168.1.X local address .When I was testing I never got any response from the mount . Accidentally I turned off the mount and but I was still able to connect 192.168.4.1 and 11880 UDP. connections
I had a wired ethernet connection to my desktop and a wifi dongle which connects to the mount.I resolved this by changing my local IP address to totally outside 192.X.X.X range.
Also attached is the command set the skywatcher shared with me. Looking at the Wireshark response, that does not match with what I am seeing in my mount. Is there any thing I am missing here?
yes, I do see = in my mount response as the starting character. , but probably the tty_Read is not correctly reading the \r as the end char in the response.
This is where it is currently failing , I need to debug this further.
May I humbly suggest that the driver is altered so that it retries (maybe 3) sending the ".e1./r" on the initial handshake - as does Synscan App etc, as this ,IMHO, will help clear the buffers and make this driver work with wireless UDP (udp being fast but dirty)
I have the Az GTI connected to my local Wifi router, and have disabled the internal access point in the mount. This is the only way I can maintain a stable connection with the mount (due to WiFi density in my neighborhood).
Up until now I have been testing the indi synscan driver in linux connected to the synscan app in windows. The syncan app in windows connects to the Az GTI through my WiFi router. No rigorous testing, but it seems to work well - at least for slewing.
I'm interested in the direct connection to the Az GTI from indi, and appreciate the effort being put into this development!
Wireshark indicates that the ip address of the mount has been hard coded to 192.168.4.1, and not taking into account the address I entered in ekos (192.168.1.20).
If you look into this, I can test the driver further.
