Ken, Thanks for the update.
Unfortunately, you need to jump through these type of hoops and expense because of how N1MM has been coded. It doesn't support multicast UDP. Multicast UDP when enabled allows for multiple applications to work with WSJTX concurrently without interference to other participating applications. The N1MM developer has chosen deliberately not to implement multicast UDP (his words not mine), so without your sort of workaround N1MM will block any other application trying to work with WSJTX.
FWIW, implementing multicast UDP is a trivial task, taken a handful of code lines, easily supported in the language N1MM is coded. Why the N1MM developer is refusing to implement this user-friendly change is unknown.
