Has anyone configured MacLoggerDX to work with SSDR for Mac?

Has anyone configured MacLoggerDX to work with SmartSDR for Mac via UDP Broadcast? If so, could you share your configuration setup?

Thank you

    I am also delving into this same configuration as we speak, having only today installed SSDRMAC. I don't want to be the first since it took me such a long time to configure MacLoggerDX with the Flex and wsjt-x correctly using the DX Lab Suite Commander setting, which has been reasonably stable. -w1xyz

    Alan, do these settings allow your MLDX to populate the freq area and double click on spots and SSDR will follow? I am new to the Flex world and am in the air between purchasing either SSDR or DPSDR.

    Yes, all MLDX functions work, to and from the Flex Client.

    Hey Alan, I got part of it working but I'm missing something with the Bonjour Sharing.

    Hover on the "Bonjour Sharing" box reveals this allows sharing with MLDX DX, for iPad:

    Ok I understand that the Bonjour Sharing is for connecting to the iPad version of MacLogger. What about the pull down field you have directly under the Port Type: FlexRadio SmartSDR? Looks like possible connected client. Your first screenshot was MacPro and the last one was Maestro. I do not have that field.

    I can control the flex via MacLogger no problem but I still cannot get it to receive the UPD broadcast from SSDR for Mac logbook. I sent Don a message to see if this is even possible yet.


    Thank you for all the help

    I run two Flex Clients, one named Maestro, and the other MacPro. You need to be running Flex firmware 3 to run multiple clients.

    MLDX has two pull down selectors. One to select the radio, if you have more then one Flex Server, and the other is the client selector, which is what you ask about.

    I select the client I want MLDX to contact to. Normally it is the Maestro.

    Here is a screenshot of the client selector "pulled down". You can see both clients.

    Hi brilliant folks, I am trying to get MacloggerDX to connect to my radio when using SmartSDR for mac. I sees the radio, says 'connected' but the frequency is never displayed, and after a few seconds it switches back to 'not connected'. It is working fine with dogspark or with my Maestro. What is weird is that in the preferences menu I do not see the dropdown for client selection at all (see screenshot). Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

    Check to be sure you are running MLDX v6.29.

    Thanks. I a running MLDX 6.31b1.
    I have just found that this is not a problem with SmartSDR for mac, now I have it with my Maestro too, contrary to what I thought before.
