    Hmm, make sure you do not have the Remote host checkbox checked. Also, remove the files ascpseriald.txt and dvtool.txt. Then run dvtooldbg.bat and forward

      Hmm, make sure you do not have the "Remote host" checkbox checked. Also, remove the files ascpseriald.txt and dvtool.txt. Then run dvtooldbg.bat and forward those two txt files that will be recreated to my email.

      It still sounds like some security program is blocking UDP port 20002 on your PC.

I was aware the Dongle could try to swap ports with the ID-1, since it shows as a selection in the COM pulldown of dvtool... but I am using the correct port for the Dongle according to the Device Manager. Interesting that if I intentionally select the ID-1's port the Dongle can always open it, but also always fails to login on any gateways... and then of course there is a port error at the ID-1 if I try to turn that on too.

It only works the first time right after installing the FTDI drivers. Device manager show everything fine on the port, and the same details as before, but cannot open device localhost after a reboot.

Then after the next reboot there are no errors but the port will not open. There is an Icom ID-1 working fine on another port, and I did try version 1.10 beta5, made sure my Java is updated, and use the drivers from the link on dvdongle.com, but still can't open the Dongle's port after a reboot. Any ideas?
