I showed the program, Viewpoint a while back that has the ability to display maps from MapSource with APRS data in a web page.  Viewpoint also has the ability to send and receive APRS messages.  Viewpoint does require that a particular callsign be assigned a "Passcode" in a minimal attempt to prevent unauthorized access.  Viewpoint will handle outgoing message retries for Viewpoint generated messages, and will "ack" messages to callsigns that have been used to generate outgoing message for up an hour after the message was originally generated.  So it is important to use a callsign that is unique.  Viewpoint also supports Reply/Acks.  Viewpoint has its own built in web server and screen capture routines for MapSource, and runs on Windows XP.  Viewpoint can be seen here:
