Issue getting ART SMARTTRACK and Flystick3 to work

Iím trying to get the ART SMARTRACK and Flystick3 connected using Vizconnect.

In Vizconnect I have selected DTrack under Add a New Tracker
Information that needs to be filled out:
Name; VRPN NAME; IP address; index;

I have DTrack running and I also have started the VRPN Server, both are running on the local machine that Vizard is running on.
In VRPN config file I have uncommented the line:
vrpn_Tracker_DTrack DTrack 5000

So I assume the values for
Name = dtrack
vrpn name = DTrack
ip =
index = 0

Do those values seem correct? Any ideas what else I can try?

When I select Flystick under Add a New Input device the only value is hostname.
I have hostname = localhost.

Does this seem correct? Any ideas what else I can try?

Or if that doesnít work should I try the Example code at the bottom of this page

If this is better, what would the code look like?

Thank you

Here is some additional information:
Information from DTrack configuration file:
[Controller settings]
Hostname : SMARTTRACK-00023
Domain :
DHCP client: no
IP address :
Subnet mask:
Gateway : none
Nameserver : none

Take a look at the information in this ART SmartTrack post and try a simple Vizard script to test the connection:

import viz

# VRPN Tracker connection (to ART Dtrack)
vrpn = viz.add('vrpn7.dle')
headTracker = vrpn.addTracker('DTrack@localhost')         #Default sensor is 0
flystickTracker = vrpn.addTracker('DTrack@localhost',1)   #Try index 1 or 2 here
flystickButtons = vrpn.addButton('DTrack@localhost')      #Flystick buttons
flystickJoystick = vrpn.addAnalog('DTrack@localhost')     #Flystick analog thumb joystick
