I shut down every night and fire up every morning. I never have these issues. It saves electricity and wear and tear on the laptop. I really don't understand why folk need to run 24/7 unless they are running a public service.

I use CCleaner now and then -- it cleans

registry dust ... in many years, I've never
had a problem for it, and for sure the pc runs
a helluva lot faster after the CCleaner cleanup.

Hello
I made these tests :


Step 1 : All works fine

1-1 : L32 is listening on 127.0.0.1 UDP port #2237


1-2 : I launch JTDX from L32 UDP Bandmap :


1-3 : JTDX Settings :


1-4 : GT Settings :


That works fine , If I logged a QSO from JTDX, this QSO is logged to L32

Step 2 : The QSO is not logged into L32 :

2-1 : L32 is still listening to the UDP Port #2237
2-2 : I stop GT
2-3 : I stop JTDX
2-4 : I modified the JTDX Settings :
I check the 2nd UDP server to 127.0.0.1 UDP Port #2237 to log directly to L32


2-5 : I launch JTDX from L32 UDP BandMap
2-6 : I made a QSO and validated into JTDX
BUT this QSO is not transferred into L32

where is my mistake ????

Thanks for your help
