A simple 'virtual wire' VOIP solution?

I want to set up a simple 'virtual wire' between a USB phone handset connected to a local PC and a remote FXO device - the PC and the remote FXO are both sitting on an ethernet network.

So basically I would have a FXO device in the field, and everytime I lift my local handset, the FXO should go off-hook.  If the FXO device has a 'ring' signal at the phone input, then my local handset would ring.

So the ethernet/USB etc is just a long 'virtual wire' .. no dialing plan setups, etc.  This should be very simple (in theory).

I'm happy to roll some code in Delphi to set up some TAPI parameters to do this, or even use a simple third party executable.

Thanks in advance.

Easiest way would be to install Xlite on the PC and make it connect to the FXO device via SIP - passing all dialled numbers "as is" to the FXO device.

Kylies solution worked. I used 3CX as the SIP registry and registered Xlite as the softphone. I set up a rule in 3CX to forward a call to the FXO whenever a '9' was dialled from any number. Another calling rule was made so that any call from the FXO would ring the Xlite phone. It worked well
