OSC not working with a direct UDP connection?

Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has any idea of what's happening with my setup.

I have a program that will send out UDP OSC messages (doesn't connect over TCP) to OSCRouter on the same computer to the EOS software that's also on the same computer. This setup works perfectly fine. However, when I try to connect directly from my control software to EOS the OSC does not get processed yet the same commands being sent to OSCRouter are processed by EOS. I am currently downloading Wireshark to see if perhaps the software is spitting out garbage and OSCRouter is spitting out "clean" packets. Anyone got 2 cents they don't mind falling out of their pocket?
