If you are using aprsD as only an IGate, have it connect to port 14580
on the servers.  This is minimal bandwidth but fully supports messaging.
You can also use javAPRSSrvr which gives you the ability to add filters
to the upstream login if you want to see certain other things.
javAPRSSrvr is free for amateur use by emailing to me directly at
pete at ae5pl.net (not my list address).
