Yes, it CAN be an IGate but there are many other program better  
suited for full time IGate functions.

Go to Settings>TCP/IP Connections>TCP/IP Settings and click "Feed  
(echo) local data to TCP/IP"

Now I'm not sure about all the caveats of using WinAPRS as a gate. I  
stopped using MacAPRS as a gate in favor of aprsd and now javAPRSrvr.  
I think if you use the most recent version it will at least not  
destroy the mic-e packets or damage any payloads but as I recall it's  
not the smartest about reverse gating and local message delivery.

Is this going to be full time, are you the only IGate in your aloha  
circle? Tell us a little more about what you are trying to do and  
about your local network.
