Ack! Yeah it was a typo in my message. I was indeed trying rotate.aprs2.net.
I just tried again and now it's working, so I'll blame sunspots or
something. :-}

Thanks all for the rapid responses.

Brad.

Try rotate.aprs2.net - it will work better - hi! I'm assuming that the
"rotate2.ars.net:14580" is a typo, but...

I just heard from my brother. He was connected using rotate.aprs2.net but
not seeing any incoming data. He checked all of the usual suspects.
Everything looked like it should be working. Via TCPIP, I could see his
station on the map. He could see his own station. He had successfully sent
me an APRS message on port I (India) but not received an ack from me. I had
sent several replies but not received an ack. We got together on HF and took
a look at it.

My conclusions... when VE7CUU was connected to "T2MCI" (using
rotate.aprs2.net:14580 and a valid filter, he didn't receive any data from
the server. It looks like that server is central.aprs2.net in Kansas City
MO. To verify this, I just connected to central.aprs2.net:14580 but received
no data. I then sent a message to SERVER on port I (India) and the server
verified that it had received  my filter when I had connected, but nothing
else was rolling in. The only data I saw in the monitor window was when I
beaconed. Looks like there is a snag with that server.

This message was to the APRS-SIG and CCd to Joe KA3NAM, operator of T2MCI...
Joe - any ideas? I'm at ve7gdh at rac dot ca.

The following stations are currently connected to T2MCI. If any of these
stations are on this list, are they receiving any data via TCPIP?
