No, these older ports don't support filtering.  The whole point was that until 
port 14580 arrived, all APRS server ports were predefined and fixed.  You just 
logged into a specific port number and took what was offered.

Port 14580 was a major innovation in that for the first time, the user could 
customize the feed.

You can see what ports are offered by any given server by going to 
servername:14501     which loads the status page for that server.  For example:

http://second.aprs.net:14501      or    http://socal.aprs2.net:14501

In addition to a list of all the users/igates currently connected to the 
server, you will usually also see a list of all the ports offered.
