Open source GVMax day 2

So far so good. A few users have managed to install GVMax without my help (if you are one of these people please consider improving the projects documentation).

Also got some users who paid for me to install the app for them which means my server costs are covered for a couple of months. For them it also means they don't need to worry about upgrades as I will automatically update their applications when new features and or bug fixes are released.

I realize that the installation process is still very hard. If you think you can help me documenting the process or help make it easier please email me at

Google Voice on real VoIP phone

Today I got a Grandstream GXP280 Voip phone to play with.
Trying to get my GoogleVoice number to use it via Gizmo.
Will be following these instructions.

Finally got the website updated

After hearing about gvxmpp's problem I finally decided to sit down and finish updates required to the website and code to fully release GVMax as an opensource project.

Installation of GVMax is still quite complex and I don't really expect anyone except for Java developers (with AppEngine experience) to manage a full installation but hopefully with time people will start to contribute installers etc.. I don't have much free time to work on that in the short term.
