[aprssig] Need help - APRSPoint to TCPIP

  Could you be getting them and not plotting them? Have you got the  
option checked to plot the position reports? Try second.aprs.net  
that's always good for a bunch of positions. I just brought up  
Packetograph (Mac OSX), cleaned  the map and used  
"newengland.aprs2.net:14580" in a matter of 5 minutes I had 120  
position reports.

So I just shutdown my MacBook Pro and rebooted into the DarkSide and  
brought up version 4.2.3 of APRSPoint (also registered) and entered  
for the sever "newengland.aprs2.net" and for the port "14580" and  
checked the plot positions box and clicked on the "Connect" icon in  
the  upper left and it worked just fine ...
