First of all Happy New Year to anyone who may come across this BLOG.
For a long time now I have tried unsuccessfully to get CWDAEMON to work on my PC. I was just about to give up when I came across Winkey Server by OK2CQR. This is a very handy binary file which talks to the excellent K1EL Keyer. Now that I have this up and running any app that expects to talk to CWDAEMON on port 6789 will now find Winkey Server instead. This mean that any Linux app e.g. XLOG, CQRLog EEPKeyer etc just works without any fuss. This is great and has made my life so much easier. Anyone who would like to dry this handy utility should go to the CQRLog download page.
A few small niggles, Winkey server fails to initalise the keyer on first attempt, but always works on second attempt, no idea why but no big deal. Also it would be nice if Winkey Server could start on Linux startup and auto connect/initalise the keyer again no biggie maybe Petr could fine tune this if and when he gets time.
