FT-897 to Raspberry Pi

Hi all, I've just recently passed the Standard exam in Australia hence am now permitted to use the digital modes for transmit.. I am keen to use a raspberry Pi for WSPR. Latest SW has been loaded and I connect to my FT- 897 using a Signalink USB unit. The setup allows me to listen but it won't automatically upload the spots heard but i can manually update the database. Another issue I have is it won't connect for TX. HAMlib error. I',m using the Data port of the 897 to connect Signalink and am using the CAT port for the MFJ-897 auto tuner.
Thanks in advance for your wisdom
