Description Jeff (reporter) 2010-07-09 00:56:36 UTC
SOFTWARE VERSION:
(Settings > General > About product)
N900, Maemo PR 1.2

EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM: 
I really had a difficult time with Google Voice Plugin for conversations and
contacts.

Problems:
1. From conversations app, "send IM to" I cannot pick Google Voice from the IM
account list, even if I configured GV correctly (saying "signed in") in my VOIP
and IM Accounts. So I cannot use GV IM/SMS

2. From Phone app/dialpad, after entering the number I want to reach, and
select call type to be GV, I got "Internet Connection Required". I tested with
both WIFI and tmobile 3g and internet is working OK (with Onion Tor Routing
enabled) and I can dial out using Skypw with no issues at all.

3. From system contacts, I have Call/IM/SMS thru GV, but all complains about
"Internet Connection Required", the same above.

4. In Wifi, I can get DialCentral to work. But not with my 3g. DialCentral
always says "https://www.google.com/voice/m is not accessible" instead of log
me in. I cannot use DailCentral in 3g.

So I end up not being able to use The One Ring both WIFI and 3g, and not being
able to use DialCentral if in 3g.

Strange thing is, the log and DC error massage shows
"https://www.google.com/voice/m is not accessible" but if you manually access
this page via built-in web browser I can access this page without this problem
under 3g with The Onion Router enabled.

So why DC and TOR cannot acceess this GV page while you can access it via
browser? Only because browser has proxy support (I cannot remember I explicitly
set proxy for browser though) ?


EXPECTED OUTCOME:
Under 3g, TOR should always work, with The Onion Router enabled

ACTUAL OUTCOME:
Not work if 3g blocking 80/443 ports

REPRODUCIBILITY:
(always)

EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:

OTHER COMMENTS:

Here is a related suggestion by a user regarding proxy support. Hope this
helps:

Using WiFi it works, but when on t-mobile 3G instead of logging in, DialCentral
always says https://www.google.com/voice/m is not accessible.

DialCentral doesn't seem to have proxy support. Please ask the author if he can
get the proxy settings from python-conic and set up the urllib2.ProxyHandler in
DialCentral's browser_emu backend correspondingly.

In some situations users need to use some proxy to get Internet access.
Right now, Maemo WordPy connects to Internet directly.

So, it should to use the proxy defined in the settings of the device (doing
this invisible to the user) or to be able to use a proxy defined by the user in
the settings screen of Maemo WordPy.
