Here in the DR a group of hams along with our amateur radio club are preparing to conifigure WInlink in case of emergency, specially during hurricane season. Ive configured it supposedly fine but cannot connect using Winmor Radio. 

Below are the screenshots on my configurations. Am I missing something?

    I found Winlink/Winmor with my Flex 6600 is a hit or miss. The latency seems to be an overiding factor. It is also the same with a Pactor modem not reliable connection.

    That's a bummer. I will give it a try tomorrow with my 7300 and see how it goes. I really would prefer running it with my Flex.

    Try setting your PTT port. You have to edit it. Then a P will be present instead of C indicating
    it is the PTT port.

    Thanks, this helped and now I’m transmitting (after changing the port to PTT). Still not connecting, but probably is more because of the signal. Will keep trying tomorrow.

    Thanks Tod. Apparently everything is working fine. I managed to send emails with Winlink Telnet, Winmore and just need to test Winmore Radio Only but I got a message that I needed to create some mailbox with one of the connections to send/receive with Radio Only.
    If you can guide me with this part I’ll appreciate it.

    I assume for this you are needing: https://winlink.org/user
    free account and if memory serves correct you need to use it regularly to keep it.
    My local club has a "net" via winlink every Wednesday which is a good way to keep in practice. Anyone from anywhere can check in so join us.
