I highly recommend that you go back to considering the keep-alive comment lines as confirmation that the server is there and functional.

I don't send the filter string with the logon, but send it as a separate command so that I can re-send it if the user re-configures the settings. I only put the vers on the logon line, but prior to the fix, my version string had an embedded space causing the server to THINK I was trying to send a filter.

      I would say that since there have been no other reports of javAPRSSrvr just quitting sending packets but maintaining the keep-alives, the server "going dumb" is actually the result of an improper filter setting. The advantage of setting the filter at login is the logresp comment you get back from the server confirming your new filter setting. At any time later, you can still use a comment line to set the filter to something else.

      I am unable to test the software at this point because I have no need for highly active data flows to my cell phone and I want a reconnect attempt as soon as possible when I do use my cell phone for APRS. Personnaly, I find masking a client issue by extending the disconnect time only delays determination of the real cause of a problem and usually leads me to frustration with any software that I work with.
