I see your using a Flex, does that indicate you're running multiple instances of JTAlert? If so, since you're using a unicast UDP address (127.0.0.1) you will need to give each WSJT-X a unique UDP port value, they cannot all be 2237. Setting to use multicast is a better solution than setting each wsjtx configuration to use a unique port.
If you're only running a single JTAlert instance, then likely you have another application trying to work with wsjtx and it is taking exclusive control of the port. In that situation, your best to configure wsjtx to use multicast UDP. See the JTAlert help file "WSJT-X UDP Setup" topic for correct wsjtx and jtalert setup. You will also need configure any other applications trying to work with wsjtx directly to us multicast as well.
My strong advice, regardless of whether you're running single or multiple instances is to use Multicast UDP.
