I am currently working on a SATNOGS rotator V3. I’ve already built the Raspberrypi and SDR, but I can’t find any documentation on connecting the SATNOGS rotator controller to the Raspberrypi and I don’t know how to do it.

In any case, the following variables are relevant from Client_Setup:
And if directly connected:
