         Fred, Afilter was probably the first attempt to slow down the flow 
of stations from the TCP/IP feed.  It came before filtered ports 
appeared.  With the advent of filtered ports on the servers, Afilter is no 
longer needed.

         The reason UI-View is popping up this message is because Afilter 
is checked in the list of servers.  In UI-View, if you go to SETUP and then 
APRS SERVER SETUP you should find Afilter.  Just uncheck the box, and 
ensure that you have at least one other server checked, and this problem 
should go away.
