I'm now trying to get APRS Messenger on one PC on my LAN to connect to 
an APRS server on another PC on my LAN.  There doesn't seem any way of 
specifying the TCP/IP port number of the server.    I tried the 
customary format of:

(the IP address and port number of the target server) without 
success.     Is some other format required?    What port number is APRS 
Messenger defaulting to for it's logins?


BACKGROUND:    I am trying to connect to the local server of UIview  at 
the machine address above on my LAN.   This instance of UIview is using 
the HF side of a KAM connected to the TS-50 to monitor conventional AX25 
on 30 meters.  It produces the map you see here:


I am monitoring the audio of the same TS50 with APRS Messenger on a 
second machine.  I want to pass the PSK63 traffic received to UIview so 
that the continental US map can show BOTH AX25 and PSK63 posits.     The 
local UIview server can accept logins just like a "real" Internet 
APRS-IS server -- I just need to get APRS Messenger to address the 
desired port number.
