I can not get JTAlert and N1MM working at the same time. Apparently N1MM does not support multicast UDP. I have tried the JTAlert rebroadcast and N1MM rebroadcast and can not get either to work.. An other ideas or input ? Thanks.
I found an old post from the N1MM developer where they indicate that (at that time) they had no intention of coding multicast support. My internal response when I read that was "WTF, why?"
I understand old code-technology based applications, like those that use Visual Basic 6 not supporting multicast as the network code routines of VB6 cannot handle it. But, N!MM is written in a very modern language that can easily support multicast operations.
It takes a couple of lines of code to switch between unicast and multicast support. It is not rocket science. The net is littered with numerous code samples on how to support multicast UDP. Why the N1MM developer does not embrace this minor change/enhancement is unknown to me. I assume he has his reasons.
As for getting JTAlert and N1MM to operate concurrently, try this...
Note: The above has not been tested
recently. This is how it worked in the past before N1MM had any
support for working with WSJTX directly.
