Any suggestions on using MacAPRS or WinAPRS behind a firewall. What should I open up? (netbsd, ipf.conf) When trying to start a conenection using tcpip, I get nothing.

Does your router/firewall have a DMZ?  Try hooking your computer up to the DMZ port and seeing if you get a connection there. If you can't get a  connection via the DMZ port, you might look for configuration problems on your computer.

If you do get a connection on the DMZ port, I would contact the Winaprs people and see what port their program attempts to communicate on.  Once you know what port they communicate on, you can open that port on your firewall and place your computer back under the protection of your firewall.

Good luck!

you can email me privately at ryan@vandewater.org  if you would like to get more help configuring your router.

A good place to check for a clue as to what may be happening is the log of your router/firewall. It may show you what ports the firewall blocked in or out, when you try to connect.
good luck
