Forgive me if this has been addressed before, but I am having connection issues with Stellarium in my observatory.  I have a Losmandy Gemini 2 G11 and have connected the mount to the laptop both through a mini router as Brian at Losmandy told me, and also directly to the laptop without going through the mini router.  It seems Stellarium only is looking for a connection through a COM port and does not recognize my ethernet connection.  I am using a Cat6 cable.  I would really like to use this software for my main planetarium software and GOTO, but just can't get the 2 to make the handshake.  It is a Windows 10 laptop with the latest ASCOM drivers and the latest version of Stellarium.  I sure could use some help if anyone has any ideas.  Thanks in advance.

Mike

I think he was having similar issues. You have to download some addon for Stellarium:
