Re: N4PY Icom software, IC-7610 and Commander problem

Hmmmmm... Guess I didn't do a very good job with the terminology, so I'll give it another try.  I said UDP not based on personal knowledge, but based on the fact that to get the communications to work between WSJT-X and Commander I went to the reporting tab of WSJT-X settings and entered the UDPServer IP address ( and the UDP server port number (2237) and checked off three boxes that had to do with UDP requests.  Then, in a panel called Secondary UDP Server, I checked a box saying "Enable logged contact ADIF broadcast" and again plugged in an IP address and server port number.  The box up the page aways that said "Use TCP/IP" address was NOT checked. 

The N4PY Icom software is basically the same as the Pegasus software for all the other brands.  N4PY told me that the technique I referred to was special for communications with DXLab, but maybe that's not true either?  Anyway, in Commander config, General Tab, Radio panel, I selected Pegasus_N4PY as the model and then specified the location of a "control folder".  In the N4PY program settings, I specified the name of that same folder, which they call the "Transfer folder".  And, N4PY and Commander were able to successfully communicate via that folder.

And, what I tried to tell you is this: When I use that means of communications between N4PY and Commander, Commander no longer responds to the request from WSJT-X to turn on PTT when I run the PTT test in WSJT-X. 

Getting back to Commander and my WSJT-X problem: If I specify the radio as an IC-7610 (with direct connection to the 7610 USB CAT port), then a box appears in the radio panel below the model area that says "Verify CI-V command acceptance".  If I fail to check that box, then the WSJT-X PTT test fails in exactly the same manner as when I'm using the control folder with the port controlled by N4PY.  I check that box, and then the WSJT-X PTT fest completes properly.  So, that's the story.  If it still doesn't make sense, I'll just have to find another way to makes things work.  Thanks for your time.
