I've had APRSDOS on the internet using one of the many Serial Port Splitters
and TCPTOSER. Set the the TNC init commands to send commands to your
APRS-IS server and BAM, Filtered ports! All this on Windows 2000.
I'm not sure about APRSDOS not playing nice with Windows. I think that's
more of that myth that comes from the same guys that proclaim 16-bit apps
will BSOD Windows XP just out of principle. I've run DOS Apps (including
APRSDOS) on 3.0, 3.1, 95,98, 2000, and XP with no problems.

Or run it in a X-window on Linux using the Dos emulator. I know folks have
had success doing that. I believe that would make it possible, with some
duct tape, to give it Internet connectivity.
