I don't think you can send to localhost with resolume 6.
In R6 you explicitly have to select the adapter, and I don't think that you can get back to localhost without active packet routing from a private IP.

If Broadcast is working, then unicasting to the Wifi adapter's Ip address should also work, doesn't it?
One solution you could use Broadcast is to connect to a wifi router, with a local subnet different than your main network. You could have the router's WAN port connected to your main network to connect to the internet if you need.
Another solution could be to use a different manual IP address range on your Wifi adapter, than your network runs on, so the broadcast packets don't reach other machines on the network.
But then you are still stuck with the shared/exclusive port issue.
If you really need to run all these programs at once on the same machine, I'd consider running each of them in a virtual machine, Resolume could use the native OS of course.
With a virtual machine setup you could set up a virtual network, bridged to your wifi adapter and real IP addresses, so you don't have to Broadcast.
