Indeed, aprsd doesnt support sending the JavAPRS filter strings for the
user defined port of 14580. However, with the number if JavAPRS servers
out there, this is probably a usefull feature.

I have a patch that completes the registration, that sends a filter
string to the remote server. The patch is included in a debian bug
that I filed, see:


Please read the commentary about it being a "Works for me" patch, and
no warranty. At some point, if the Debian maintainer deems it sane
enough, it may find its way into the Debian Package.

Note, while the patch is against the debian source, its pretty simple,
and doesnt touch anything debian specific, so other dists should be
able to use it.

And just for the record, youll want something like this in aprsd.conf:

hub ireland.aprs2.net 14580 <call> <passcode> p/w3ado/pcsat/raft/ande

Best Regards
