How will this work with a Winlink gateway on our network?

I'll have to research how Pat on a RasPi will work with our HF & VHF Winlink RMS gateway that N2LEE hosts on our NoVa-Mesh AREDN network here in Virginia.
Will it work similar to a Winlink Post Office like the one KE2N hosts on our network?
How many nodes should have a Pat-based Winlink box?

I'm sure Pat will work on the RasPi on which some of us run Meshchat. Many of us already have a Raspberry Pi connected to our nodes that we run services like Direwolf, Internet gateway firewall, PBX, rtl_tcp, NAS drive, and many other services that so many of the folks experiment with.
This could be a lot of fun.

Damon,

Pat will connect to your current HF/VHF gateways without issue once configured. I have a playlist that should help get things installed and configured. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1QTYT4Qo9cY98NFmxrTvtGyWI9pgxtFq

It can also connect to your current Winlink Post Office as a client.

Pat will not function as a post office. The video demonstrates 2 Pat clients connecting P2P.

Great playlist.

Jason,
I've seen a few of your videos, but when you put them in a playlist like this it really walks you through this material, enabling someone to go fro zero to hero on the 'Winlink on Pi' capability. Thank you.

The idea to use a cron job to

The idea to use a cron job to automate the polling is really slick.

re: The idea to use a cron job to

Thanks. That is one of the greatest features of pat. The GUI is nice but you can automate so much with the command line interface.
