It works very well and this provide complete transparent phone

the attached DTU is not logged, which is really cool. (imagine, you

the phone, no need to get into software SIP client)
We also added phone-from-dtu (ok, I just invented that name), which
allows you to dial your hardware phone from your DTU. It's just a
shell script called dial <number> wich will do all the job. We
created a gnome applet to interface with this script.
