Well, after much work and playing I got my Logger 32 to work and control frequency of the Flex 6500. Also, I got FLDIGI to work fully!!! Wonder of wonders. But not both at the same time. No mystery here as they both used com 5. OK, I need to use Smart SDR CAT to add a port. here's my experience.
I tried to add a port with SSDR CAT V 18.104.22.168 Serial "PORTS" tab / add a port / shows COM 6 - 16. Under ports map, com 6 says unknown & port 16 says CAT.
But on the 'MAIN' tab, "Connect 3rd party programs to PORT" still only shows com 5
FLDIGI is currently working. Logger 32 is no longer working even when I close FLDIGI.
In the computer device manager I see FLEX CTRL com 3 (which BTW no longer works) and virtual serial ports 14, 15, 16, 4, 5 & 6.
I set L32 for port 6 and then port 16 but neither worked. I think I need to see port 6 or 16 on the main tab under " connect 3rd party programs to port:"
Is this correct thinking? Any suggestions? Many Thanks, Jim
