Herrhausen,
ssh under Windows ? yes but it is more complicated. You need to install ssh and set it up which can be tricky if you want to access your server with a RSA key. Plus, if he does as you say, he needs to keep the ssh link up all the session. indiserver being a child process of ssh, if you cut the link, it will also kill the indiserver process :)
Try :
/usr/bin/indiserver -v -m 100 -p 7624 indi_simulator_telescope indi_simulator_ccd >> /var/log/indiserver.log 2>&1 &
At least, you indiserver will survive a down link ... Replace with your own drivers of course.

You need to install indiwebmanager on your Ubuntu. It's a small web server listening on port 8624 that will launch the indi server for you on demand (when you connect through kstars). First you need to install pip then indiwebmanager.

You have everything explained at the bottom of the github page of indiwebmanager ( github.com/knro/indiwebmanager ).
How to start automatically indiwebmanager is also explained. Don't forget to open the 8624 port on your Ubuntu once you're done.

In case something goes wrong, you connect to the indiwebmanager with your browser (http://your_indiwebmanager_address:8624/) and you reset the indi server.

manager.cpp: setWindowTitle(i18n("Ekos - %1 Profile", currentProfile->name));

Perfect ;)

I understand your point, but one remark (generally speaking, nothing personal.) Why are you, mobile people, so attached to batteries ? For the price of a good battery (say 200 bucks) you can buy a 1200W inverter that will never let you down wherever you are in the field. Considering a mount needs 60W and a laptop 100W, I let you do the math to see how much gear you can power up with 1200W. If you put the inverter behind a rock (or behind your car) you won't even hear it. And if your car is not a diesel, a simple hose will help refuel from your tank should you need it (6 hours autonomy for a 12Kg gen) :) Seriously ... ???

Hello, and welcome.
First of all, if you intend to install an Indi server on a Raspi, you don't need any remote desktop solution. No VNC. So yes, a simple server distro will do. As for your 32/64 bits problem, you need to install a 64bits version of Ubuntu Server. That said, I'm not sure you'll get much better performance from a 64bits arch with an indiserver :) But I'm sure you'll need much more RAM for the same service. ;) Frankly, a raspi3 under a 32bits distro is largely enough to run an indiserver.

I think there is no good or bad solution. It depends mostly of your own skills with a Unix system. If you're a beginner, or just coming from the Windows world, then an "all-in-one" solution like Stellarmate or Astroberry is probably perfect for you. On the opposite, if you are familiar with networks, bash, vi, git, and compiling your own version (eventually your own branch) then you'll certainly prefer to have a "true" server/client architecture with an indi server ( one or several ) on the mount and multiple clients on your laptop. Personally, I think the best advantage of Indi/Ekos/Kstars **IS** this full server/client architecture which gives you almost infinite possibilities, only limited by your own imagination. Besides, I personally love the Unix philosophy which is "One tool for one purpose", opposite to the "Swiss army knife" solution "à la Windows". Plus, having the sources on my own git tree is something that provides me with incomparable confidence. The best point overall is that there is a solution for everybody, from beginner to advanced, and a community of nice persons always ready to help you doing your first steps.

Hello Jasem,

Would it be possible to simply display the Ekos profile name in the main window title, so when I'm using several instances of Kstars on the same computer, I know at a glance which scope I am using ?
Thanks!

I have a little problem with Ekos. My setup is a SW EQ6-R mount with a Raspi under Fedora 29 (USB-SERIAL with persistent name) and a laptop under Fedora 29 too. The Raspi has no RTC and no Internet cnx. All softwares are from github compiled by myself, so I can go back in the git history if any problem happens with a new version; besides, there are no RPMs from Lupinix available for the Pi under Fedora.

Now, here's my problem :
If I choose "Ekos updates all", the clock on the Raspi is set to UTC. I'm UTC + 1 + Daylight savings = UTC + 2. My localtime on the Pi is correctly set ( localtime -> ../usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Paris) Once the time is set to UTC on the Raspi, my target starts to drift , and it leaves my FOV in a few minutes.
The problem is easy to fix, I just don't let Ekos set the time of the PI and make chronyd on the Pi sync with the laptop. Still, I'd like to understand as I suspect I'm missing something.
Any idea ?
