The center of your map should be ME. If not, right click on an empty space and select Center on ME. Or zoom out and see if it shows up somewhere.
That would likely only be ME confirming that you really aren't getting any packets.
Good, that means that any stations you do receive should be visible if you zoom out far enough.
That also correlates to having received nothing yet.
Getting ME's popup menu will show the actual IP address of the rotation server you've connected to. That information may help figure out what filter is being provided to the APRS-IS network.
That is the correct passcode for your callsign, but that really doesn't matter since receiving doesn't need the passcode, only transmitting.
Ok, now we need to know specifically which instance we're diagnosing. You've got the following recent stations:
KF5AOK-5 - xastir last seen 15 days ago
KF5AOK-2 - APRSIS32 last seen 3 days ago, but it was mobile
KF5AOK - APRISS32 last seen 1 day ago
kf5aok-11 (case purposely lower) - last seen 15 days ago (Apparently xastir as well, but with a lower-case entered callsign?)
KF5AOK-9 - APRSIS32 last seen 1 hour ago. If this were still active, I could have checked the server you were connected to for a filter.
Please check your Configure / General / Range setting and make sure that it is a positive number. It is expressed in 1/10 miles, so a setting of 500 (the default) is 50 miles around ME. If this is set to zero, you won't get any stations. If it is set to 10, you'd only see stations within one mile of ME, also likely to be none.
With the location of KF5AOK-9, I suspect you'll need at least 500 and I'd go with 1000 to start getting stations as there aren't many in your immediate vicinity.
