      Start RUMlog, go to "Preferences" in the menu bar. Find the "Digi" tab.  In the upper-right corner is the Fldigi configuration section.  Select "Send TRX data".  Hit "Save".

      Now, go to Fldigi, "Configure", "Rig Control", look for the XML-RPC tab.  Select "XML-RPC" program.  Hit "Save" and "Close".  

      Once you have a logbook setup in Fldigi (you can import your ADIF file to create and save one), you will need to point RUMlog at the logbook.  Again, in RUMlog, go back to "Digi" tab, in the Fldigi section, select "Log"…this opens a finder box. Hit CMD+SHIFT+. in order to show hidden files. Look for the .fldigi directory in your home folder; the logbook is under the 'logs" folder.  Point at that folder, then hit "save". 

      Now, you can automatically check or manually check and import QSOs from Fldigi by going to the Digi menu in RUMlog, select "Fldigi - Auto check log" (will check every 5 seconds or so for new entires) or "Fldigi - Manual check" (will only check when you ask it to…this is what I use). Once the log is imported into RUMlog, you should be good to go for editing/tracking/QSLing using RUMlog. 

      Let me know if you have any problems.  For support of Fldigi on OS X, this is the best place to be, but for general Mac ham radio issues, you may want to check out the Mac Ham Radio mailing list at: http://mailman.qth.net/mailman/listinfo/ham-mac   There isn't a lot of traffic, but it is a good list for OS X hams, with lots of good support when needed.

      Hi Dave,

      thank you for your information.
      RUMLog RUMrouter and running on my Mac very well, only the coca modem I do not like. so I wanted to use fldigi for RTTY, PSK etc..
      How can I connect with fldigi RUMLog? I am, as far as the mac, nor a newbie.
      Where can I set the function in fldigi XML-RPC? What needs to be set as?
      fldigi with RUMLog for me would be the best solution.
      I hope you can give me a little help here.

      > The microKeyer requires the uRouter program because many of its functions are performed in software/firmware, not in the actual hardware. Thus there is not an actual USB-Serial port available in the microKeyer that is accessible by OS X with the use of uRouter. Unfortunately, Chen has stated that he does not intend to support Fldigi because 1) he is the developer of CocoaModem, and 2) Fldigi doesn't support standard OS X ways of doing things (it is cross-platform, after all).

      > As I've said before, the only way I know of getting Fldigi to work with the microKeyer on OS X is through the use of RUMlog and RUMlog's RUMrouter feature. RUMlog can be downloaded from www.dl2rum.de, and is free. It is an EXCELLENT OS X logging program.
      > You will need to configure RUMlog to talk to your rig (I do believe the 706 is supported) and then configure RUMrouter to talk to the microKeyer. You can then set Fldigi to function using XML-RPC, which will allow RUMlog to pass frequency information to/from Fldigi. RUMlog can also automatically import your logs from Fldigi, or it can be configured to do so manually.
