For the AP400, you should use the AP-WARE software which you already  
use under Windows (not GWARE, which is for the XAP400).

We've been able to run the AP-WARE itself OK under WINE, but don't  
have an AP400 to actually connect to. We _think_ that AP-WARE under  
WINE should now connect to, and control, an AP400. It'd be great if  
you could give it a try and let us know the result.
