CW Skimmer / DDUtil interface TCP socket

Wondering if the TCP socket that CW Skimmer / DDutil uses to listen to the Flex server is configurable.  Currently it is 7310.   Reason I am asking as it seems to be interfering with other programs (Live Mail). I am not sure that is the reason but if I could change it then I could test to see if there is a conflict.   BTW I just got the Flex working with CW Skimmer and DDUtil yesterday.  I was really doing it the hard way before.   It's nice to actually have CW Skimmer freq readout track the VFO.

For CWSkimmer the answer is yes (the setting is in the ini file).  Not sure about DDUtil.

No not currently, but it's on the enhancement list.

Steve, I haven't tried to use Skimmer with DDUtil instead of SDRBridge, yet.  I hope to try tonight or Thursday.

I notice in your help file that your arrangement only works for slices A & B.  Would it be possible in your next update to allow it to work with Slice C or D?  My reason is that I would like to park a Skimmer using slice C or D on a frequency and simply use it to poipulate the bandmap in N1MM via the Tenlet interface.  I don't really need to use all the click-tune stuff, I just want to create my own spotting network from my own receiver using the 96 or 192 DAX IQ feed, If I could use slice C or D for this, then my A & B would still be available for SO2R.  I did this a few weeks ago for the CQ 160 CW contest and it worked pretty well, within limits, using SDR-Bridge.  

But if I am going to use DDUtil for some antenna/preamp switching, I might as well use it to drive Skimmer.
