I am expecting delivery of the new Astrotrac360 mount soon and from what I understand so far, you can only connect to it via WiFi, so it would be nice if that would be possible. Any guidance on how to do that would be very nice. Thanks!
have you ever heard of the azgti？
it did can be connected to ASIAIR via wifi
In my understanding, the following key points are needed.
1: the port number of the mount(such as azgti :11880 sratbook ten :80)
2: to set the station mode on the app(set this on azgti app called syncscan or syncscan pro)
3: need to set the asiair to master mode
Hope the above info helps
I think that perhaps what Lancer meant by master mode is that at present ASIAIR can only set itself up as the Access Point of a network.
As such, ASIAIR will have an SSID, the familiar ASIAIR_xxxxxxxx string, unless you have changed it yourself. The hex digits following "ASIAIR" come from the ARM chip's Processor ID (which ZWO also use for licensing).
Somewhere in your mount, there should be a menu setting to set the mount up as WiFi station mode, and a place to enter the ASIAIR's SSID. Additionally, there should be a menu field to enter the WiFi password of the access point (12345678 in the case of the ASIAIR).
Since the connection between the mount and ASIAIR needs refer to the same IP at both ends, you cannot use DHCP. So, set your mount to ignore DHCP, and choose a fixed address of the form 10.0.0.n, where n can range from 2 to 254. (1 is the ASIAIR access point itself, and 255 is the broadcast address).
As long as no one else (WiFi extenders, desktop computers accessing the SD card, etc) is using the same IP address to connect to ASIAIR, you can pick your own fixed IP address. To avoid collision, it is probably safe to use some number in the middle, like 100.
I don't think ASIAIR cares what number you actually use, as long as no two WiFi devices are trying to connect to ASIAIR using the same IP address.
On the ASIAIR side, in Telescope Settings, you will want to select Ethernet, and use this exact same 10.0.0.n IP address. You will also need the Port number that your mount listens to, which you need to get from the mount's manual.
Thanks for the answer, I understand, and have already been able to set the mount up in station mode and connect to the ASIAIR. The problem is, that in the menu of the mount there is no way to disable the dhcp. So I do not know what the asdigned ip address is. I als mailed AP to see if they have a solution to manually enter an IP address, but haven't heard from them yet.
Ah, I understand now.
Page 43 in this document has an arcane way to determine the last two hex fields of the IP address from the serial number of the controller for use in firmware downloads:

(Pretty much SN/256 and SN mod 256, but why did they not just make that simpler statement?!)
SkySafari users seems to use Port 23 with the GTOCP4.
Will that combination work for ASIAIR?
Somewhere else, the manual also metions turning DHCP to either OFF/CLIENT.
