Thanks, I'm going to check that out. I found out that I could in fact connect to Xastir's server port using UIView32 and YAAC. However it sent the CPU usage through the roof.

On a RaspberryPi with APRX and Xastir
load average: 0.15, 0.19, 0.22
With the, server port enabled and UIView and YAAC connected.
load average: 0.94, 1.09, 1.05

Hopefully ldsped will run much better.

Thanks again, Max KG4PID

​The closest thing is ldsped, which will provide access to the AX25 network via 1 or more agwpe compatible interfaces.  For example, an old computer or Raspberry Pi running LInux can be connected to a TNC and set up with AX25 networking and run a headless Igate such as aprx along with ldsped.  UIView or APRSIS32 could be running on a separate Windows computer on the same network and access the TNC via AGW interfaces.  Most APRS clients support AGW interfaces, so this setup does enable any computer on the network to access the RF from a single TNC/radio combo.
