Looks like the V3 driver is making the initial connection, you can see the MountInfo command making the connection as like in the moserial terminal test. the other driver won't work as it is using the older V# command.
It looks like the mount is communicating and then is starting to get errors. Check linux "dmesg -T" to see if getting any errors at the USB driver level. You may want to try a different USB cable as well and see if getting same time out errors.. I've checked my logs and seeing the same commands being passed, but not any timeout errors.
The dmesg -T comand does not show any additional problems after above log was created:

In my case the indiserver comand shows a rather old version!
2020-06-11T21:38:40: startup: indiserver
Usage: indiserver [options] driver [driver ...]
Purpose: server for local and remote INDI drivers
INDI Library: 1.7.6
Code 1.7.6-tgz. Protocol 1.7.
How can I update to 1.8.6? My version 1.7.6 comes with the Ubuntu stable version installation.
I created another log file with the iOptronV3 driver, but this time including the debug "verbose scope" option.
Here you can see the command ":GEP#" which is causing repetitive timeout errors at the end. This command is not described in the communication specification you linked in your answer.
Wondering if it is the indi library version you are running, I don't see those commands on mine. I see the GLS ones, but not the GEP ones. Might want to switch back to the nightly or bleeding build and update and check the indiserver version to see which one is loaded.

And are you running on Ubuntu or are you using Debian (or even another deb-based Linux)? Please note that the Ubuntu installation procedure only works on Ubuntu. Other Linux may accept the commands but it can lead to strange errors.
