FT8 Flex6500 configuration - not connecting to rig

When starting up FT8 I get an error message "Rig control error, do you want to reconfigure the radio interface?"       "Hamlib error: IO while opening connection to rig"

Apparently not connecting to radio which works fine with FLDIGI, DX Labs Suite

I could use a tutorial but couldn't find one.

Here are my FT8 settings that I think are the issue somewhere.

Config RADIO tab
Rig: FlexRadio 6xxx
Network Server: blank [tried 127.0.0.1:5004]
PTT: CAT
Mode: None [will use DIGU]
Split Operation: Rig

AUDIO tab
Input: DAX Audio RX1
Output: DAX Audio TX





Slice DAX set to channel 1, matches DAX Control Slice A which is on/streaming

DAX Control TX on/streaming

Network server - I did read in another post somewhere not to use the radio IP (192.168.168.144) but to use 127.0.0.1:5004 which did not work either. Default seems to be to leave this blank.


This looks to be simple, but...

Any help would be appreciated..



Flex6500, Win 10 Creator's ed, - latest updates, SmartSDR v1.10.16, rig working fine otherwise.

If you using DXLabs Commander, set your "RIG"  to that.

Here is a link on it  http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/WSJT-X_Flex6000
