If this appears as a normal TCP/IP "virtual Ethernet" connection, it 
should work.   APRSce supports normal IP-based APRS server connections.

As far as I know,  NO .   There hasn't been any change for over two 
years now.   As a result, it doesn't support the current APRS symbol set 
or overlays.

NO .

[ I am a registered owner of APRSce and have mostly run it on an HP 
Jornada 540 connected to a TH-D7, along with a Garmin ForeTrex wrist GPS. ]
