I just read an article about this on http://hbase.net/2014/07/14/caller-id-looks-up-filemaker-client-record-with-voip-telephone/.


This makes me wonder if I could perhaps send strings directly to FM server's XML service and if so whether it is possible to have the server run a script on a clients machine to open up a small information window each time the phone rings. I was thinking about something like perhaps troi's activator plugin or something in that direction.


This would proobably mean that I would need to store the users IP address or some other identifier each time the user logs into the FM server.


A secondary approach might be to have the user click a button and open such a window manually.


Does anyone have any thoughts on the above?
