You could connect to a regional feed or to a "port 14580" server that allows
you to specify a filter.
>From the sample you provided...
#Server connection definitions
#usage: <Server> <host name> < host port> <TYPE-DIR>
<optional OmniPort filter command>
Server second.aprs.net 23 hub-sr
Server first.aprs.net 23 hub-sr
Server third.aprs.net 23 hub-sr
With the above, you would connect to one of the three specified servers.
It looks like port 23 is a "full feed" of the world.
It looks like port 14576 would be "your position + 500 km"
Port 14580 is a "user definable filter port"
>From the "usage" example you sent, it looks like you should enter something
Server second.aprs.net.au 14676 hub-sr
Server second.aprs.net.au 14580 hub-sr m/1000
but I'm guessing at the syntax for the filter... e.g. "m/1000" for a "my
range filter of within 1000 km of your position"
Looking at http://second.aprs.net:14501/ it looks like you are currently
connected, both wih UI-View and with aprsd.
14580 18.104.22.168:2222 VK4TEC Yes UI-View32 V2.03
And the line immediately below there shows...
14580 22.214.171.124:1857 VK4TEC-10 Yes aprsd 2.1.5b9
so VK4TEC-10 is connected to port 14580 with aprsd but with no filter
entered. As far as I know, you could send to the server, but with no filter
defined, it wouldn't send anything back to you. Maybe that is what you were
intending to do.
