Hi Andrew,

Theoretically, yes.   Realistically, probably not.

If the "server" software is available, and be made to run on typical
PC CPUs, the answer is yes.  I can't recall if the satellite/server
side of the software is available or not...search around.  The client
side software was called PB and PG, so search for those. Also, you can
search for pacsat protocol.  There is a *nix version of these out
there, too. I think the source code is posted.   But for the satellite
side (server)--not sure.
