Astrobert Interesting! How does your setup look like?
I have an Avalon Instruments M-Uno mount controlled by the new StarGO2 Pro (SG2) controller. The SG2 is an aluminium case containing the motor controllers and a Raspberry Pi 4B. The SG2 Pi is running a local INDI server and drivers for the mount, the motor controllers and the INDI SkySafari driver.
The mount and the ASIAIR Pro are both connected with ethernet cables to a satellite of my home wifi mesh. Since both Pi's, the ASIAIR and SG2 are using the Pi 4B, their local built-in 5GHz wifi is too weak to actually work with them efficiently. Therefore, they are set-up with the wifi mesh.
Now, what I would love to do, is to use the native INDI driver of the mount on the ASIAIR. So far I was not able to do that. Both ZWO and Avalon looked into this and only found the current following work around: Using the SkySafari driver on the SG2-Pi by choosing the "LX200 Basic" on the ASIAIR (IP address of the SG2 and port 9624). The LX200 Basic driver does not provide the INDI Guide commands, but can slew. The guide commands are required for polar alignment and ... guiding, obviously ;-). So I can neither use guiding nor PA on the ASIAIR.
KStar/EKOS, PhD2 and other INDI based tools, however, can access any remote INDI driver. Now I can either start KStars/EKOS on my MacBook Pro or I
ssh -X pi@IPaddress to the SG2 and start the remote KStars/EKOS on the SG2 with the windows popping up locally on my MacBook through XQuartz (hence the -X option). It does not matter which or where I start KStars/EKOS, I just have to provide EKOS the correct IP address of the SG2 INDI server and it finds the native driver for the mount automatically. I connect my ASI camera to the SG2 Pi, run the PAA in EKOS and once its finished, I plug the camera back into the ASIAIR.
The guiding camera is connected to the SG2 Pi and I access it remotely from my MacBookPro via PHD2 and its local INDI client.
Now this sounds all very complicated, but it's not, since everything is running on the same MacBook now. Either via Terminal window or locally and connecting to the INDI servers and apps on either the SG2 or ASIAIR.
