Hi Per,
That file you mentioned ./.pskmail/.internet is blank file. Is that normal?

Hi,

The great mind that should answer is Rein but I'll try to say something...
Clients and servers send their beacons the same way with a position packet.
A server that receives a position can not see whether the transmission
was sent from a client or a server so it will send a QSL.
When other servers receive that QSL, like QSL KB2PNM de KB1NCJ, they
will realize that KB1NCJ is in fact a server.
That also happens when the server hears another server answer a ping or
ack an aprs message.
The server callsign is added to an array and the next time it hears a
packet it will check if it originated from a known server, if so then it
does not send a QSL:

if (exists $servers{$1}) {
     # do nothing, its a server.
  } else {
...

That list of servers is loaded at startup from the internet if there is
a connection, those calls should be here:
{HOME}/.pskmail/.internetcalls

So, we should be able to add known servers manually...
