Thanks Andy,
Having found it with your help, I can not find a tag for igate call, I have 
added one I found in another configuration.xml that was igate yes, but adding 
this did not seem to make the box ticked in 1.8.1.
I guess tags do not need to be in any particular order being an XML file, maybe 
that is a wrong assumption, as I do not have a tag for igate call, do we know 
what this tag should look like?.
We are doing our best to get round the problem.
Thanks for any help.

    In win xp the file configuration.xml
      is located in


      C:\Documents and Settings\Proprietario\pskmail\


      where Proprietario is your settings folder.

          Hi all,

            it seems that jPSKmail 1.8.1 don't save the Igate call and
            so sometimes the Igate don't work, but opening the
            configuration.xml file and manual setting the I-gate call,
            then it works.

              Strange, it works o.k. here (se attached screen pic).
              One peculiarity using the Igate is that you must use
                a different Igate call

                for every server or Igate, the APRS backbone does not
                allow multiple connections for one call.
              In Europe, use the euro.aprs2.net server. It provides
                a rotating connection which prevents
              too heavy load on a specific server.
              The netherlands.aprs2.net server is down momentarily
                because the university building
              has been sold (for the same reason PI4TUE does not
                exist anymore...)

                          Hello Rein,


                            sorry to have so many questions, I am
                            working on multiple systems and they have
                            different issues with all of them.


                            I may revert back to a 1.x system at work
                            then, as long as we can get the igate


                            I have 1.8.1 at the home location,
                            unfortunately when I upgraded from 1.5.26 to
                            1.8.1, the Igate will not connect, it was
                            working well with the old version, I have
                            entered an igate call sign and ticked
                            the status box, but nothing happens, if I go
                            to preferences and save, then close and
                            open jpskmail, the igate call and tick boxed
                            are no longer there, could this be a
                            compatibility issue with the old config file
                            and the later version?, or is the igate
                            function no longer supported?.


                            I am trying to create another igate that
                            supports dominox to help the system.

                                unfortunately jpskmail version 2
                                  does not support DominoEx,

                                  as the modem is not available in java
                                That is the main reason why I am
                                  concentrating on version 1 with fldigi

                                            thanks for the information,
                                            I have a copy of jpskmail
                                            2.1.0-f running on a PC at
                                            my work location, I was
                                            hoping to leave this running
                                            as an additional gate for
                                            traffic, it has been running
                                            for some time now and seems
                                            to work well, is there a
                                            newer version of this second
                                            generation software that
                                            supports domino ?.

                                                          beacons from
                                                          two servers
                                                          OE5RTL and
                                                          9A1CRA, are
                                                          they the only
                                                          ones on


                                                          Do these have
                                                          code versions
                                                          in use that
                                                          will allow
                                                          decode of the
                                                          domiox modes?


                                                          I was just
                                                          thinking that
                                                          if I get time,
                                                          and changing
                                                          modes is not
                                                          too difficult,
                                                          I could try
                                                          this mode at
                                                          some point to
                                                          see if there
                                                          is any
                                                          difference in


                                                          Thanks for any
