Hi John,

connects are reported on the APRS backbone with a GATING message. Purpose is to 
tell other servers where you are 
connected, so the servers know who has to transmit an APRS message when it 
arrives for you.
This is a very simple routing scheme. The server displays these as CALL->CALL 
when they come in, so you 
can easily check if it still works...

There is also the ~ROUTES command, which will display a list of these routes at 
the client.

I noticed that although I connected to my server (version 1.0.0) yesterday and 
two days prior too, it did not report the connection through PSKAPR on the 

I seem to remember that connects as well as link requests resulted in a 
"Gating" message posted to PSKAPR.

Has anything changed or is it normal?
