Force mouse capture in VMware client

VMware vSphere  and VMware Workstation allows seamless mouse movement between your physical and virtual machines. In most situations this is a desired behaviour, but sometimes you may want mouse cursor to be captured inside a VM. For example, I was testing Windows 8 as a virtual machine and it's much easier to navigate Metro edge UI when mouse cursor is captured inside virtual PC. Also can be beneficial for gaming.

Linksys SPA VOIP phone rejects calls from Skype SIP Trunk on Asterisk

Asterisk (Trixbox) hangs on "recordingcheck" and drops calls


Asterisk (TrixBox) server is not functioning properly. Internal calls working fine, but external incoming and outgoing time-out and fail. Looking at Asterisk Command Line Interface (CLI) output (connect with asterisk -r) noticed unusual behaviour:

Normally when incoming call is received, Asterisk outputs number of executed actions into CLI and receiving phone starts ringing in less than a second. On this occasion, however, Asterisk was stopping at following line and hanging for about 7 seconds:

VERBOSE[29592] logger.c: -- Launched AGI Script /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin/recordingcheck

Then, if caller was still on a phone it would go to:

VERBOSE[29602] logger.c: -- Launched AGI Script /var/lib/asterisk/agi-bin/dialparties.agi

It would be stuck there for a few more seconds and eventually call would be dropped. In fact occasionally receiving handset would actually ring (probably long after caller has hanged the phone).
