Nice! I'm running the same version. Hope to get it all ready before Wednesday May 26th (total lunar eclipse out here).

I've found one issue which I don't understand -
So, I'm tinkering away with an Arduino next to the Raspberry Pi, in order to drive a servo and a relay, and that's all sort-of OK so far
I can run that on the StellarMate via VNC,
I use VNC on my laptop to tunnel through the hotspot into the Stellarmate,
I can edit the /usr/share/indi/<my device>_sk.xml setup for the indiduino device,
I run KStars and then EKOS on the Stellarmate, and
I can configure the indiduino <my device> settings in EKOS, and
the switch switches and the servo serves, etc. 

HOWEVER then when I tunnel back out and run KStars and EKOS on my laptop, using the remote StellarMate as an indi-server, I cannot add <my device> to my virtual observatory. 

What am I doing wrong here?
Do I need the <my device>_sk.xml on my local laptop as well, and if so, where ?
It seems strange to me that the client needs to have the configs for the server ?!?

Cheers, Otte
