Likely a PC Protection software update is blocking the comms. A PC restart may help, especially if your running Win10

Since JTAlert requires WSJT-X to be running on the same PC, try changing the UDP Server address to "127.0.0.1" or better still change to using a multicast address like "239.255.0.0"
