Yes, this is probably possible and I will try. But I not use Lin-guider myself so it may take some time to familiarize with.
I also need you for testing.

Do you know any documentation about the communication protocol?
at the moment I only found a program example and the server source code.

Thank you Patrick!
Count on me of course for testing and for any other kind of help I can be useful for.
Unfortunately I don't have any documentation about the comm protocol, apart from the same test program you already found.
Should we talk to Andrew, lin-guider's main developer, for more info?
Thanks again Patrick for your great work and support to the astro community!

Revision 608 implement Lin_guider support:

I only test with lin_guider using the camera simulator but I cannot test guiding myself because I not have a ST4 cable to my mount.
Connection, start and stop guiding must work but dithering is totally untested because it require a calibration.
Can you try if it work for you ?

Thank you very much Patrick, your work is invaluable!
I will test it as soon as I have some clear skies and time.

Revision 611 add TCP connection to lin_guider. This work from remote host, even with CCDciel running on Windows.
Unix socket or TCP is selectable in the options.

I not think there is more to do here and this interface must be working.
