just tried from here and the ip results bogus, so this means
that no convers server is associated with it.
The IP results active and it is the 'saupp' running at 
G4APL ...
just exchanged greetings with Paul.

The running encap file at gw.ampr.org associates the 44.131.244/24 subnet
to the commercial IP 62.x.x.x which is that I currently use for the PBBS 
forwarding with the GB7CIP/G4APL ...

I suggest you to use the 62.x.x.x IP since it is a static IP address and so
it wouldn't be changed by the bogus one.
