If you had done only a minimum of reading about ASCOM, you would know that ASCOM only works on the Windows platform. We never say anything different. We offer the ExplorStars application for the Windows, Android and iOS platform. The ExploreStars app only works wirelessly over WiFi using the UDP/IP network protocol. You can use ASCOM either wirelessly over WiFi using the TCP/IP network protocol, or hardwired using a DB9 Serial to USB adapter cable. That's all there is.
We provide more than adequate instructions to install and use our software for anyone willing to simply follow them. Your continued insinuation that our system does not work or operate as we say it does will put you at risk of being removed from this forum. If you have any questions after reviewing the materials we provide in our knowledge base or on our software and downloads page on our website, i suggest you contact customer support at +1 (252)-3811 ext 2.
