Here are recommended steps for setting up Internet SPOT support with SDR-Bridge V3:

Install a DX cluster client. For example, CC User available at

Configure CC User (or equivalent) to receive desired spots and relay them to a localhost port. In CC User, Port Setup screen, check Enable Telnet and set the Custom Port to 23 (or your choice).

In SDR-Bridge, connect to a Station.
On the Spots tab, Internet Source, set: Host localhost, Port 23 (or your choice).
Click Enable.

In CC User (or equivalent) click Connect and verify that a packet cluster is connected.
Click GET ALL.

Spots should now appear in SmartSDR V3 panadapters.
