I run UIView over my LAN but I do it a little differently.

In my case the "ham" computer runs Linux which has a UDP link to the 
Windows machine for UIView. APRS radio traffic goes to the LAN via that 
port. You don't say what operating system the "ham" computer uses.

On the Windows machine I run AGWPE with the LU7DID axip driver. UIView 
interfaces with AGW.

AGW has a "remote control" option that allows it to function over a 
Telnet link from anywhere on a network. If you're running Windows on 
both machines, perhaps this is an option.
