The APRS-IS network only 'stores' the first packet it receives for any given transmission.
Since your station is configured to send a packet to APRS-IS, the TCP packet is the first one it receives.  All receptions of that packet will be considered "DUPE" and ignored.

Digipeating is enabled/disabled through manual XML editing (as you seem to have done).
This follows the standard XML format. 
If you properly added DigiXform outside the RF port designations (typically below the commented one):
     <!--DigiXform-->
     <DigiXform>WIDE1-1=WIDE1-1</DigiXform>
and now want to disable it, you have 2 options:
  1. delete the line
  2. comment out the line
     <!--DigiXform>WIDE1-1=WIDE1-1</DigiXform-->
     I have seen other comment it out this way, but have not tried it:
     <!-- <DigiXform>WIDE1-1=WIDE1-1</DigiXform> -->


APRSIS32 will act as an IGATE if you have an RF port configured, and you are connected to the APRS-IS network.  This requires 3 things (I believe):
   APRS-IS port properly configured under Menu >Configure >Ports >APRS-IS
   APRS-IS valid passcode under Menu >Configure >General >Passcode
   APRS-IS Enabled under Menu >Enables >APRS-IS Enabled

Re: AGWPE not working.

Alder Kail
 

Alright. So the issue was fixed, The windows privacy setting that disables microphone access to programs was enabled. It caused AGW to crash occasionally, and the second icon (The modem icon) to never show up. My dad was the one that changed the setting and since there was no way to know this setting had been changed I guess checking it slipped my mind. Also I didn't notice anything was wrong with the sound card when I was going down my checklist so I assumed it was a port issue. Thanks for all the great suggestions, sorry to 'cry wolf' in here when it was something so simple! My igate is operational again. 

If anything, lessons learned: Don't assume it isn't a sound input related issue just because the sound card is working. Make sure nothing software related (Thanks windows) is blocking it. I didn't know it would make AGW react that way.

I'll definitely reference all of your messages next time something like this happens as well, again thanks for the great advice! 73, KI5IBL


Re: AGWPE not working.

Rob Giuliano
 

Do you have either of the 2 icons in the bottom left tray?
   If none, it is not loading at all.
   If only 'packet engine', then the configuration file is not being loaded.  The TNC engine icon will show when the configuration is complete.

If you have both icons, then the interface between AGW and the application would be the next review.
Are you running on the same computer - localhost or 127.0.0.1? 
  Check the IP address and IP port (make sure they are not already in use).

As for the alternative applications, it depends on your configuration.
Are you using AGW with a soundcard or a physical TNC? 
   There is a list of TNCs to choose from, including soundcard.  Some people use it with a physical TNC to send the packets over a network.
   If you are using it with a sound card, then either UZ7HO and Direwolf will work for you.
   If you are using a physical TNC, you need to use something like APRX or LDSped (I think both have Windows versions).


Re: AGWPE not working.

Lynn Deffenbaugh
 

AA0DY, that sounds like a change in APRSIS32 settings to get it to talk to your functional AGWPE installation.

If I understood KI5IBL correctly, he's having trouble getting his AGWPE to start up which is of course a per-requisite for using it from APRSIS32.

And for KI5IBL, there is always UZ7HO (?)'s SoundModem or the more actively developed and supported Direwolf software packages that provide soft TNC functions between sound card input from a radio and packet output communications with APRSIS32.

Re: The Green, Red and Orange Lines radiating out from "ME" ?

Or it might be an RF-Only packet sent by KF0ED that was gated to the APRS-IS by a station that is off-screen.  But most likely you copied a digipeat of your own packet.  At least, that's what my memory tells me.

I thought Lynn already answered this.

The colors and thicknesses are all configurable via
Screen-Paths-Appearance menu.

What color do you want to see your packets? (these are Orange)
What links do you want to see? Mine, RF Only, All, Direct (with pixel thickness and color) I am the first station to receive this packet (with pixel thickness and color)

Can you open up this menu and give us a screen shot, and a screen shot of your main window, then we might be able to better answer your question because it's all based on this menu configuration.
