Maybe you already found this PDF.
It is for Windows, but there is a workflow diagram which is useful. I would suggest to read this first. As a Macuser I was not so familar with these things and I was alwas a little bit afraid, that I never could switch back ;-).
Note, there is also a Mac Version for Packet Sender. For me it worked also, but I prefer the terminal solution as it is normally „on board“.
To switch the IEXOS 100 form UDP to Serial on a Mac with the Terminal App you can use these commands. I assume, that the IEXOS100 is in UDP Mode and you are connect with the WIFI Network from the Mount.
Open a Terminal and enter
nc -u 192.168.47.1 54372
Now you are in TCP Mode and you can switch to Serial, use this command:
nc 192.168.47.1 54372
Now you are in serial mode and have to connect with a USB cable to the IEXOS 100.
Going Back to TCP/UDP
In CoolTerm you can use the Standard options, change the Baudrate to 115200. And select the correct Port! Under Options—>Serial Port you will find a menu for Port. Select the Port which is connected with the mount. At the moment I can’t tell you exact description, but you will figure it. If in doubt, check the options with the unpluged and pluged mount over USB.
I’ve also changed under options—>Terminal from Raw Mode to Line Mode, than you have a input line to enter ESX! which is the first step, if you want to switch back to TCP / UDP and Explore Stars.
Hope that helps.
