Buttkicker Hapticonnect, VR, Dirt Rally 2.0 telemetry?

I am trying to get the Buttkicker Gamer Plus to work with Dirt Rally 2.0. I am using the Buttkicker Hapticonnect app, which should pick up telemetry from the game, generate vibrations, and send them to the Buttkicker amp via USB.  I am getting zero signal though. The same method works fine in iRacing and Assetto Corsa.  It is as if HaptiConnect wasn't able to pick up telemetry from DR2.  

Has anyone encountered a similar problem and was able to solve it?

Is there a setting in the game that one has to use to enable telemetry output?  I went through the menus, but I could not find anything.

You must set the UDP port required by the software, the settings file is in C:\Users\your computer name\Documents\My Games\DiRT Rally 2.0\hardwaresettings

Modify the port in the line of udp to the default port of the software you want to use

Ah OK. Now I need to figure out which port does HaptiConnect expect.  I thought it would use the default 20777 which seems to set up correctly in DR2.0, as other games work out of the box.

For anyone who may encounter such problem in the future, the following line had to be added to the hardware settings file in the motion platform section

<udp port="21888" extradata="3" ip="" enabled="true" delay="1" />

Actually, the line was present in hardware_settings_config.xml but was missing from hardware_settings_config_vr.xml - and I play the game in VR.  I guess DR2 people did not realize that a shaker or motion platform could be used together with VR.

The full motion platform section that does the job for me is:

        <dbox enabled="true" />
        <udp enabled="false" extradata="0" ip="" port="20777" delay="1" />
        <custom_udp enabled="false" filename="packet_data.xml" ip="" port="20777" delay="1" />
        <fanatec enabled="true" pedalVibrationScale="1.0" wheelVibrationScale="1.0" ledTrueForGearsFalseForSpeed="true" />
        <udp port="21888" extradata="3" ip="" enabled="true" delay="1" />


Also, playing DR2.0 with the Buttkicker is AWESOME
