MacOS 10.10. Indi Server and Indi Control Panel from CloudMakers.
From Indi Control Panel connection via cu.usbserial is successful and IEQ45 mount coordinates are correctly reported. They change when the mount is driven from the hand box. Slew is selected. When new coordinates are entered (that are above the horizon) the mount slews to RA and Dec of 00:00:00 no mater what was entered.
From the command line: execute indiserver for this mount. Select port (ttyUSB0) and connect using indi_setprop. Use indi_getprop -v and current coordinates are shown just like from the INDI Control Panel. When new coordinates are entered the mount slews to 00:00:00 in both RA and Dec no matter what coordinates were entered.
Ubuntu 14.10. Apt-get of nidi-full and indi kstars bleeding.
From KStars Tools->Devices connection to the mount was successful. As above coordinates were correctly shown and changed with manual hand box control. Attempting to drive to any coordinates sent the mount to 00:00:00.

In particular, you need to turn on both driver debug and scope verbose. Make sure to log to file, and send me the file after your testing. You need to test all functions in the driver including settings custom tracking and guiding rates, sync, motion commands...etc. Also, after initial connect, check the controller to see if the time and location settings in the INDI driver are reflected in the controller, including UTC offset. Please also test the home functionality. You can also test the park functionality, but I am working on an updated park functionality for all telescope drivers, so you can hold until that is available.
The driver should be available in the PPA tomorrow.
Looked at the instruction page. This will be an adventure possibly with questions that you will find trivial. But I do want to come up to speed. For example the driver should be available on the PPA has no meaning to me. I suppose some navigating around the site is in order.
This weekend I should have time to work on testing the driver under Ubuntu.
Yes please, Peter, eventually I will be operating under MacOS .
Ran Indi_server and Indi_Control_Panel. New dialog in Indi_Control_Panel with a Main submenu and Options submenu.
Set all the debug levels in the options submenu.
Set the port in the options submenu
Connection from Main was successful.
Looking at the log file ...
Getting firmware data timed out.
Then continuous errors processing declination and right ascension inputs.
Coordinates reported in the Control Panel were always zero even if the mount was driven manually.
I tried selecting the 'Park' position. Mount went to 00:00:00 in both axes.
