Question ART SmartTrack and Vizard

Hello,

I'm using an ART SmartTrack system for position information on a controller.

I'm attempting to get information on the button states and position/orientation of a FlyStick 2 controller using your vrpn7.dle extension.

As far as I can tell, I have everything working on the ART side.
I've setup output to the localcomputer using a UDP port of 5000 transmitting the flystick information with an id of 6df2.

In Vizard, I'm trying your simple example code:

Code:
import viz

viz.go()

vrpn = viz.add( 'vrpn7.dle' )
tracker = vrpn.addTracker('Tracker0@localhost')
While the extension loads, I am unable to get a response from the device.

************************************************** ****************************
** Loading ConnectionTest.py
************************************************** ****************************
vrpn7.dle VRPN7 Extension
** NOTIFY: Connecting to VRPN tracker at '6df2@localhost'
** Load Time: 1.91 seconds
VRPN Warning
(3) from 6df2: No response from server for >= 3 seconds
VRPN Warning
(4) from 6df2: No response from server for >= 3 seconds
VRPN Warning
(5) from 6df2: No response from server for >= 3 seconds
VRPN Warning
(6) from 6df2: No response from server for >= 3 seconds

What does the text in front of the ip address mean? Is this the ID in VRPN?

I could hardly find any documentation in the Vizard manual about ART or how to go about connecting through VRPN.

Any suggestions would be very helpful!
