Determine the BUSINESS NEED (what to they want) BEFORE you come up with a solution. If you don't, you probably will waste a lot of time and money, and end up with a mediocre or non-functional system.

Are you being asked to provide internet access to these "Non Ham
county people" when they are in the valley? APRSISCE/32 is not a WIFI
access point.

Are you being asked to deliver position information from the APRS RF
network to the APRS-IS and subsequently allow these "Non Ham county
people" to view the information on the internet? If so, you've got
that done already.

Here's the fill-in digipeater as seen on the internet.

digipeated by W6CO-5 will be seen on aprs.fi and other APRS web

So, the PTB (Powers That Be) said "put a server there" without saying what the "server" is supposed to do?  Typical.  But we can't give you much direction without more specifics of what is desired.

What exactly does #4 "establish link to APRS digi" actually mean?  And clarification of what "server software" is expected to do would also be helpful.   The only thing I can say that APRSISCE/32 doesn't (and isn't likely to) do is #5 for D-Star, except possibly via APRS-IS if there's a D-PRS (http://www.aprs-is.net/dprs.aspx) gateway running.

Ken,

I'm cross-posting this to the APRSISCE Yahoo group to see if anyone
there can lend any experience to your needs. If you can post a response
to this message describing more details of what you're tasked with and
what features you have not found to be met by APRSISCE/32, we can work
through them.

If APRSISCE/32 can't do it, then I suspect there isn't an APRS client
out there right now that can do it. But that might be a bit of vanity
talking.

You really haven't explained what it is that you are trying to do yet.

If you want to have an APRS program running as an i-gate between the
APRS-IS and RF, then this program has that capability.
