INDI Server for Windows is a wrapper and INDI server for ASCOM drivers. It was developed as a supporting module for jINDI cross platform observatory control software, but can be used with any other INDI client running on the same or a remote machine (e.g. AstroImager, AstroTelescope, AstroGuider, INDI Control Panel, iINDI, KStars, XEphem PixInsight or CdC).
The wrappers for telescope, CCD, focuser and filter wheel device drivers and the INDI server with the control panel are implemented and tested with both our and 3rd party clients.
INDI Server for Windows is compatible with most clients based on INDI 1.0 and newer.
INDI (Instrument Neutral Distributed Interface) is a distributed control protocol designed to operate an astronomical instrumentation. It is used typically by scientific grade software on unix operation systems like Linux or Apple OS X. ASCOM (Astronomy Common Object Model) is a platform and de-facto standard for vendor and programming language independent communication between astronomy software and astronomical instruments on Windows computers and .Net platform.
To run INDI Server you need Microsoft Windows operating system (should work with XP and later), ASCOM Platform 6.0 and later (www.ascom-standards.org/) and Microsoft .Net 4.0 and later.
