I have windows xp which is a virtual machine on a Ubuntu host.
The windows has HMP3.0 and VoiceGuide 7 installed and running.
The screenshot of ipconfig run of windows while IVR is running is attached herewith.

Also the following is the output after executing ifponfig command on my ubuntu operating system.

Screenshot shows the IP address of the Windows machine running VoiceGuide is:


Your Ubuntu ipconfig is reporting IP

Is the machine that you are running the Linphone on?


Is the VM running on the system?


Can you ping that IP address from the machine that is running Linphone?

If the Windows machine can be pinged then all that you need to do is to enter in the Linphone text box where it says "SIP Address or Phone Number"




We'd recommend setting up HMP+VoiceGuide on its own physical system, or a VM running on top of VmWare ESXi


Running HMP in the Oracle VirtualBox is not supported. It might work, or it might not.

The fact that it is not supported suggests that there will be problems running on it, but you may find that those problems only appear when running a larger number of simultaneous calls.
