Sky X Pro connection

Question

Does anyone have the correct configuration settings for using BYN as a camera in The Sky X Professional?   I got it to work ONE time and it captured an image of the wall inside my observatory.  It save a FITS image file to my PC in The Sky X folders and at the same time it saved a Nikon NEF raw file to my PC in the BYN folder I designated.  That is what I want it to do but now after shutting everything down and restarting, TSX shows no camera connected, but when I select Take Photo,  BYN takes a photo and saves it to the PC.    The FITS image does not show in TSX, and the camera is still "not connected" to TSX.

This looks like a SkyX connection issue.  Have you posted on the SkyX forum.

From a BYE's perspective it exposes the API through a TCP server.  Make  sure 3rd party integration in BYE is enabled in the Settings dialog.  Beyond that make sure the port specified in BYE matches the port defined in SkyX.

What version on BYE are you using?

This may also be another case where the Firewall element of your AntiVirus software has decided to kick in...  You may want to list the TCP Port of the BYE TCP Server as "Allowed" in your PC Firewall - Windows Defender or other...  (As you are running BYE and TSX on the same PC the IP Address would be 127.0.0.1)

Thanks for everyone's help.   I think the problem is solved.   I was using USB to Ethernet to USB extenders to carry the data from my observatory into my house.   They appear to have been overwhelmed by the amount of data from the Nikon (6000x4000px) so it was a communications issue.   I connected direct USB from my hub to my laptop and everything worked as it should.   I did add the IP address to my PC but it didn't seem to make a difference but thanks for that information anyway.   It might be useful down the road.

Clear skies and thanks again.
