Vonage I'm running a few PPC Macs myself. And while I don't have the VPhone hardware to





I'm running a few PPC Macs myself. And while I don't have the VPhone hardware to try it out, here is what I have so far surmised (and some things worth testing if you do have the VPhone software).

First off, there is no guarantee that VirtualPC will see the device at all. The problem isn't the software on the device itself, or its ability to run under VirtualPC, but how USB devices are detected and enumerated by the system. This is a job for the host OS (in this case, OS X). The host OS must virtualize access to devices to any virtual machines running under it, and if the VM software doesn't export this functionality for your device type, you're SOL. USB devices are particularly problematic in this regard, as they are designed to be live plug-and-play (i.e.: you plug them in as the system is running, the device advertises its endpoints on the USB bus, and the host OS attaches the appropriate device drivers to communicate with it across the bus). If VirtualPC doesn't listen for all USB bus events and pass them on to the Windows VM itself (and it can't, as for certain core types OS X will intercept the bus attachment messages first), it simply won't recognize that the device has been plugged in, and won't talk to the device.

There may be a better way, however. As the device is supposed to work without drivers on Windows, it must be using standard USB interfaces. For the storage subsystem, it will implement the standard USB Mass Storage Class protocol, which every OS supports (this is why you can plug a standard USB drive from any manufacturer into any system without regard for OS, and it will be detected). For audio, I'm hoping it supports the standard USB Audio class protocol, in which case again, Mac OS X will automatically support it when you plug it in.

That just leaves the software, and for this you can use either X-ten Lite or SJPhone, and put it into the storage on the key. The tricky part will probably be getting the necessary configuration information and entering it. You'll want to download the software, and then either reformat the V-Phone to use HFS+ (I suggest without journaling, unless you think you'll be changing the data on it frequently), or create an HFS+ disk image inside the existing FAT-16/VFAT partition (which is good if you want to retain the Windows software).

This still leaves a small problem: the configuration file for X-ten Lite are normally written to your ~/Library/Preferences/com.xten.SIPClient.plist file, which is where the software expects to find these settings. You'll want them on your key, however, which makes it tricky to ensure these settings are on any random machine you want to use (with a similar problem for SJPhone, although I don't know where it stores its properties, as I'm not running it here). You may be able to work around this with a small script that makes a soft link to the file on your USB key in the appropriate place. Perhaps not the cleanest solution, and it does require you to have sufficient permissions on the system to write files to ~/Library/Preferences (in order to make the link), however it does have the advantage of security (as you're not copying the file, when you leave a system you don't control the next person won't be able to make calls using your account).

I think the real key is whether or not the V-Phone is using the standard USB Audio Class protocols, or if it has some weird custom protocol. As a Mac developer myself, I'd love to play with this and get a solution working, but don't have a V-Phone device myself, and really have no intention of getting a third Vonage line that I have no use for just to get one (I already have a main Vonage line and a Softphone account).

Which brings me to another possible solution: if you just want to use this with specific Macs, get yourself a standard USB key, get a Vonage Softphone account, get the X-Pro software for the Mac they give away with it, throw it on the key, and get yourself a Bluetooth headset. All Macs from the last few years have Bluetooth built-in - just pair your headset with the Mac, run the software on the key, and enjoy the same experience without the wires (this is much how I run my Vonage softphone - I have it installed on my PowerMac at the office, and on my PowerBook which goes everywhere with me. Calls to/from either go through the Bluetooth headset I take everywhere with me).

HTH!

Yaz.
