APRSIS/32 does messaging in both directions, normal location traffic doesn't
currently do IS > RF which is what you are after..  works well with TNC in
Kiss mode (I am using agwpe) to give TNC access to other pcs on my network..
This does what you want with nearly callsign and rf port setup...  very
easy..    Kim

javAPRSSvr's example config doesn't do open inet->rf gating by default.  It
gates messages to rf for stations heard on the channel.
You have to configure one (or more) of the IGatePass* commands to override
the default behaviour.

RX only iGates break aprs messaging as the protocol defaults to using the
inbound iGate to send messages back.
