Thanks for the great info, Richard!
It appears that I am moving some packets from RF through the IGate. I am

I am not moving any packets from the internet to RF.
Current setup is temporary with a 5 watt FT-817 rig and an 11 element
beam. Will improve the situation with 45 watts and omni antenna once the
software is better tested, configured, and understood.
