It's all here : http://www.qrv.com/sdrbridge.html and in the excellent tutorials
under "quickstart".

Version 1.6.21 of SmartSDR didn't change much, but the new version 1.5.0 of SDRBridge did! The connection is much more stable now.

I run CW Skimmer this way:

1) Slice set to CW, 400Hz bandwidth, DAX set to I/Q 96k
2) CW Keyer by ZLP electronics with extra com port plugged into Flex6k5
3) HRD DigitalMaster with winkeyer support connects to that com port
4) SDRBridge 1.5.0
5) CW Skimmer
6) WK profiles in SmartSDR for the main bands, switching works from DM
7) Iambic paddles connected to CW Keyer, can take over at once this way

Toggle frequencies 1-2 times between CW Skimmer and SSDR -> runs!
