[Dxspider-support] DX-Spider & CLX

Hi Bill,
If I'm correct, you can use the same perl script for generating the CT
UDP frames for a Spider cluster
I could be that you have to change some minor things (like the port
number to connect to)
but generally it should work - it's simulating a client connection to
the cluster
I'm doing the same thing but with a perl script I wrote myself ...
let me know if you need any help migrating it to spider ...

	To understand why I have two different nodes operating locally,
you would
	need to understand the history of events that led up this time.
I had been
	running CLX on the W6RFU, N6WS-6, and W6TK-6 nodes before I
tried DX-Spider.
	After testing DX-Spider on the local W6TK-6 node, I like the
features, so I
	migrated the local users to that node.  I kept the N6WS-6 CLX
node operating
	as a secondary route for DX-spots through the internet.  We
later lost the
	RF path for W6TK-6 node's link into the local RF network, so it
also became
	dependent on the Internet for DX-spots.  At that time I
considered shutting
	down the N6WS-6 node, but I still needed CLX for contests.  I
use the
	ability of CLX to generate the UDP frames in the CT format for
contests on
	my local network.  The encapsulated UDP frame can also be
	through a VPN for use at another contest site without the need
for local
	generation for the CT clients at the contest site.  So, until I
figure out a
	way to do this with DX-Spider, I still need CLX operating
locally.  It only
	needs to be operating during contests, but I don't have a reason
to shut it
	down between contests.
	I hope that explains the situation here, and the reason for the
two DX nodes
	on the same computer.
	73, Bill

	I'm curious--why would one want or need to run two dxcluster
	on the same computer?
