WSJT-X and JTAlert and DXLab logging

Flex6500 and latest versions of Win10, SmartSDR, WSJT-X, JTAlert, DXLab Keeper for logging.
Flex + WSJT-X (with TCP port via localhost:5002) + DXLab works perfectly. 
Problem arises when adding JTAlert to automate logging into DXLab Keeper.  JTAlert requires a UDP Server:127.0.0.1 with port #:2237, but entering this is not compatible with Flex control by the TCP localhost port.  Is there a work-around or do I have to change the Flex control to a UDP port and discontinue the better and more efficient TCP port?
Thanks for any advice...

I run a similar setup as yours. My 6500, and computer running SSDR, WSJT-X, and DXLabs are connected by Ethernet to a switch. Configure DXLabs Commander to control the Flex. Configure WSJT-X to use Commander. Configure JTAlert to log to DXKeeper. It all works together nicely. Contact me off-list if you need additional help. Regards, Jim K5JAZ

I suspect you may have a port conflict.   Mine is set to port 5200 and works well.   see below:
