some confusion about online/offline solving #40962
Hi all,
Still learning the system ;-) Something in the Ekos pdf has me a bit confused.
I run Kstars/Ekos local on a W10 laptop and Stellarmate on RPi.
Now the pdf states that in order to be able to solve offline I have to install Astrometry.net (Ansvr) on the laptop with the index files - which I did.
It then says to check online and give http://127.0.0.1:8080. So I guess that I fool the laptop into thinking it is working online while it is actually working local?
Cheers Arnold

Hallo Arnold,

Yes that's correct. ANSVR will start a local web server that listens on port 8080 so even though Ekos doesn't actually leave the machine, it thinks it does.
