DxKeeper must be up and running before gateway is started - in order to allow the gateway to establish DDE communication to DX Keeper. The Gateway software starts minimized.
DM780 must be configured in the following way:
- Go to logbook options
- Select the sheet QSO Forwarding
- Activate the UDP checkbox
- Fill in the address 127.0.0.1 (assuming the gateway software being installed on the same PC as DM780)
- Fill in the port 2235 which is the default UDP port the gateway software initialises on
The current version of the program transfers/forwards a COMPLETE ADIF record to DXKeeper, including Contest and contest serials. In DM780 log entry the State/prov is forwarded to the ADIF Primary Administrative Subdivision (=State field in DXK database) and the County is forwarded to the ADIF Secondary Administrative Subdivision (= CNTY datafield in DXKeeper database).
