Does the current SmartLINK support DAX (for WSJT-X)

in DAX
  • Remote 6400
  • SmartSDR on local computer (not the remote NUC)
  • Using SmartLINK to connect to remote 6400 radio
  • All is worrking fine for voice ...
  • Trying to use WSJT-X on the local computer
  • DAX and CAT are logged in, and DAX is selected

In the WSJT-X settings, it asks for the "Network Server" and the port of the network service. <-- What do I enter? The IP address on the local computer? What "port"?

Lastly, will this even work? I have been reading that SmartLINK does not support DAX but the messages were for old versions.

I saw YouTube videos but they all addressed running WSJT-X and SliceMaster on the remote computer (one at the radio site). It is VERY unclear to me if and how to set up a Flex 6400 to remotely operate DATA using SmartLINK

    UPDATE - I got SmartLINK and WSJT-X to work :-)

    • Determined that in WSJT-X I had to enter the local IP address and port 5002 (from SmartCAT)
    • Using SmartLINK, I ran FT8, FT4 and WSPR beacon from my local computer and it worked

    Maybe this exists, but I searched the forum but did not find a simple step by step instruction on how to use SmartLINK (w3.4.24) for data. There is a LOT of information but a lot is old.
