N1MM-DXKeeper Gateway Online Help

The N1MM to DXKeeper Gateway enables each QSO logged in N1MM+ or N1MM to be immediately logged to DXKeeper.  The Gateway is free, and contains no advertising; commercial use is expressly forbidden.

Installation

To install the Gateway, download its zip archive, and extract the application it contains into the folder of your choice. This application will only work correctly if you have DXKeeper installed. You can create a desktop icon to start the Gateway, or you can configure the DXLab Launcher to automatically start the Gateway with your DXLab applications.

Configuration with N1MM+

Display the N1MM+ Configurer window by opening the N1MM+ Config menu and selecting the Configure Ports ... command. On the Configurer window's Broadcast Data tab, check the Contact box, and set the IP Addr: PortIP Addr:Port box to its right to  your computer's IPv4 address, followed by a colon and the port number 12060, e.g.

192.168.1.11:12060

To determine your computer's IPv4 address, direct windows top open a Cmd window, enter the ipconfig command, and strike the enter key; your computer's IPv4 address will be included in the results displayed by this command.

Configuration with N1MM

Configure N1MM to send an external UDP broadcast whenever it logs a QSO by terminating N1MM (if running), and then using a text editor like Notepad to place the following entries in the N1MM Logger.ini file:

[ExternalBroadcast] 
DestinationIPs=127.0.0.1
DestinationPort=12060 
IsBroadcastContact=True 

If an [ExternalBroadcast]section is already present in the N1MM Logger.ini file, add any of the DestinationIPs, DestinationPort or IsBroadcastContact statements that are not already present in that section. After modifying N1MM Logger.ini, save your changes and restart N1MM. Additional information about N1MM's external UDP broadcasts is available here.

In some cases, the Gateway will not receive N1MM's UDB broadcast unless you include your computer's IPv4 address in the [ExternalBroadcast]section's DestinationIPs item, separated by a single space, e.g.

DestinationIPs=127.0.0.1 192.168.1.11

To determine your computer's IPv4 address, direct windows top open a Cmd window, enter the ipconfig command, and strike the enter key; your computer's IPv4 address will be included in the results displayed by this command.

If N1MM is running while you make changes to its Logger.ini file, those changes will be overwritten when N1MM terminates.

Operation

You can start the Gateway, N1MM+, and DXKeeper in any order. The Gateway displays a small window that indicates whether it has "connected" with DXKeeper, which it does automatically when DXKeeper starts. Clicking this window's Help button displays the web page you're now reading. An indication in red font will appear if new entries have been placed in an Errorlog.txt file in the folder in which the Gateway resides; if this happens, please report it to the DXLab Yahoo Group. During normal operation, the Gateway's main window can be minimized; its primary purpose is to permit the Gateway to be terminated when desired.

With the Gateway running, logging a QSO in N1MM will log a QSO with the following ADIF fields in DXKeeper:

If you have questions or suggestions, please send them via email to the DXLab Yahoo Group.
