Hi Eric,

I do what you are wanting to do all the time.. It works real well..

You already have the Enable Local Server checked, so now on your 
upstairs computer, you need to go to Setup/APRS Server Setup, and add a 
server to the list that is your basement computer, such as 
plus a ":" without the quotes, the add 1448

It will look like this

To add this, put your cursor near the top of the existing servers, the 
use the Insert key on the keyboard, and type the above address in and 
hit enter. now, put a checkmark in the box to the left of the new 
address.. You do not need to check Logon required..

Now go to Action/Connect to APRS Server and you should start seeing data 
across the bottom of UI-View like you do when you are looking at your 
downstairs computer..

Let us know if I missed something, :-) and good luck.
