I belive that Andrew was referring to entering your callsign in the 
station setup. You must enter a lat / long in the station setup, but if 
you also have a GPS connected and enabled, UI-View will use that 
position. By "passcode" he was probably referring to the APRS validation 
number entered in the APRS server setup.

The "APRS" should remain. It's actually the destination. UI-View32 v 
2.03 will translate that to APU25N before it is transmitted... via RF or 
TCPIP. If you were on RF, the actual digi path would be like

There's no need to have the "Internet" beacon rate set at 60 minutes. On 
RF, bandwidth is precious. Reasonable beacon rates should be used. Via 
TCPIP, why not set it to every 10 minutes? You aren't going to overwhelm 
whatever server you are connected to by firing a beacon off every 10 

If you do enter a path, it won't hurt anything. It just won't do 
anything unless you connect a radio and TNC. You had said earlier...

You should leave "APRS" entered there, but no path is needed after that 
if you aren't on RF.

What SSID are you using on the laptop?

[APU25N via TCPXX*,qAX,Core-2]
June 188 2008 it didn't have a validated connection. The "TCPXX" tells 
us that.

WB4BSD-6 does have a validated connection but it doesn't appear to be
