UI-View32 will gate traffic to RF if the destination station is "local" as 
defined in the IGATE.INI file in the "max digis for local" setting. If it is 
set to zero, only stations heard direct will be considered local. If set to 
1, stations heard via one digi would be considered local. If set for 2, 
stations heard via two digis would be considered local, etc. If in your 
location there a number of nearby IGates, setting it to zero would probably 
be the best setting. If the nearest IGate is a few hops away, set it 
accordingly. Maybe I'm misinterpreting your comment, but I don't think there 
is anything in UI-View32 to be corrected, but perhaps the UI-View32 station 
in question needs to adjust their IGate settings.
