FYI, JTAlert does use the port 1100 API for interaction with ACLog.

The original poster was having issues where the UDP server in WSJT-X was setup for unicast and ACLog was taking ownership of the UDP port preventing JTAlert from interacting with WSJT-X.

In the situation where 2 or more applications need to interact with WSJT-X concurrently, WSJT-X needs to be set to use multicast UDP and all applications wanting to work with WSJT-X will similarly need to changed over to using multicast. For JTAlert, that changeover is simple, a simple tick of a menu entry, all other settings like the correct multicast address and port are automatically determined by JTAlert. I don't know how or if ACLog can use multicast in their newly released ACLog 7.
