If I work with the keypad installed (no EXT), everything is fine - no
problem with pier flips and pointing - therefore the information for
initialization seems to be ok.

You are right, the problem seems to be the "EXT" setting - the software
seems not to send the right data to the mount, if any...
There is really no reason to use EXT. TheSky6 works fine with the keypad
being in control of initialization (i.e. keypad set to Autostart Yes or No). It is
only in situations where control of the mount is desired from properly
configured software on a computer that you might want to use the EXT settings.
TheSky6 is not one of them, however you can use Pulse Guide for initialization from
your computer if you wish to do this type of thing in the future.
