It works on 3.5.4 hurray - and the multi-star guiding is also pretty cool to see.  KStars has been crashing a lot as well though so clearly there's another issue coming through?  Ah well.

Did you manage to resolve this?  I have been having similar problems - Kstars crashes, the mount keeps tracking.  Same thing last night (on a v clear night!).  What should have been 4 hrs of sub returned 27 mins.  Ah well.  The only thing I did differently last night was that I left guide at Bin 1x1 (normally I leave it 2x2) - no idea whether that might be a factor, not a software person!

Vin replied to the topic 'Failed to connect to INDI Server' in the forum. 1 week ago

Just putting the fix on here in case of help to anyone else.  Had logged a support ticket at SM & Jasem replied saying that the thing to do is to NOT start a Web Manager on the remote Pi through vnc.  Instead to click Web Manager button on the laptop Kstars & start the server that way (and then ofc connect the relevant equipment profile etc).

< I guess that must be a change in something in 3.5.4 b/c previously starting the server via vnc on the remote Pi used to work but I guess s/t changed in the software - at least there's a working protocol now :) >

This has been working last few times.

Here are the messages it reports:
"Establishing communication with remote INDI Web Manager...
Warning: INDI Web Manager is not online.
Connecting to remote INDI server at stellarmate.local on port 7,624 ...
Failed to connect to remote INDI server."

But INDI Web Manager IS online - I can see it on the screen as online.  And when I press "Web Manager" on the Profile Editor, it goes to stellar mate.local:8624 and shows "Server is Online".

This is r-e-a-l-l-y frustrating.

Hello,

First clear night in ages & the usual problems.  I have connected over ethernet to a Stellarmate RPi3 which is connected to my scope setup.  I can vnc into the Stellarmate, close Kstars and then open the web manager & start an INDI server.  It say server is online.  But then when I go back to the KStars on the laptop, and try & connect it says "Failed to connect to remote INDI server"!  What am I doing wrong?  This is the first time I'm using it since upgrading from 3.5.2 to 3.5.4.  Is it a problem w that?

First clear night in ages...aaargh.

Vin created a new topic ' Best FW for INDI compatibility?' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

Hello,

I have to get a FW as part of a mono setup.  Which FWs (or FW manufacturers) are best & most stable w INDI/EKOS pls?  (I was looking at an Atik but then on further diligence came across the various problems folks have had w their drivers & INDI - which made me want to crowdsource tips for which are the best FWs that do consistently work w EKOS!).

Thank you,

Vin

I shall take silence as an indication of continuing problems (esp given this thread from 4 months ago) :)  Oh well, strange of Atik to only support Windows in this day & age but we are where we are.

Hello,

Just a quick Q for the community pls.  Have the INDI/Atik driver issues that were giving a lot of people problems w Atik EFW2 (as well as a few cameras) as recently as 18 months ago been resolved?  Are ppl able to use EFW2 without any difficulties?  Just wanting to check before I pull the trigger on one of those!

Thank you,

Vin

Hello,

Thought I would just close this out.  I finally got my pier installed, and then cleared the mount model and now that it is in permanent position, recalibrated it.  It seems to be working now :) Flips are happening when they should.  Will report back if any problems, but hopefully fingers crossed!

Cheers,

Vin

Thanks @Ron Clanton that is encouraging to hear.  I will download 3.5.4 (hopefully it will crash less than 3.5.2 has done the last two nights too).  As you'd expected, no clear nights for a week now so will report back once I've had a chance to test it again!

Cheers
