No reason it shouldn't. Not sure what the performance will be as VPC is somewhat of a dog (but I can't wait for Microcrap to release a universal binary so it will run on Intel based Macs! ).

But since VPC is a full Windoze environment, it should. I've not done much networking with VPC so I don't know the issues involved with IP forwarding to VPC and ports and all.

What we are really hoping for is a port to OS X/Unix for IVSM. Bob, the author, is soon going to be releasing the source code. Since IVSM is based on Apache and PHP, there's no reason it can't be modified to run on OS X and modified farily easily, I think.

Nobody has even hinted at attempting to tackle this. The program source code is available if you'd like to take on the mission.

I started on this about a year ago but the code has a LOT of MSWindow$ "hooks" built into it that would make porting it more of an effort than I have time for. (Not to MAC but to FreeBSD.)

Actually, I believe it has come up several times, especially since the posting of the source code. In particular, this post more than "hints" at specifically tackling this...

And, here even Bob himself brought it up! And, it was discussed fairly extensively at that time...

Well, I'm a long time Mac user and will definitely never go back to a Windoze peecee, so my only option is to pursue porting IVS to a Mac. If anyone can tell me or send me a link to the source code, I'll give it a whack! Not that I'm real experienced in this field, or even have allot of extra time on my hands, but with some outside help (from the rest of you Mac users) maybe we can get something going.

I seem to remember a program that you can download that will help certain programs (not necessarily a .exe file) run on a Mac. It might make porting to a Mac much easier and less extensive. I'll just have to search around for it. Don't remember a whole lot about it, but do remember that it had something to do with MONGO (or at least you had to have it to run Mongo).

Any pointers on where to get started?

The real problem is not running programs, it's mostly written in PHP which runs natively on almost anything. The problem is that Bob used a lot of MS Windows specific system calls to manage various things (like interprocess communications) that will need to be carefully examined, understood and made to work in a unix environment. That's the big job. I actually have it working on a freebsd machine but the process communication still needs a lot of work to make the whole thing functional. I just don't have time to hack code anymore.
