Try using UI-View32 v2.03, you will of course have a slight learning 
curve but works very well as an IGate.  Can be used with filtered port 
14580.  You can by using the extra logon text feature for you filtering. 
  It can I believe be set to watch only the ballon (callsign).  You can 
also edit the IGate.ini file using the editor for further filtering.
