It is a well-working software (client is written in PyQt). I used it on my
Nokia N800 for 
some time. But it realy is not fast - even on the N800 with its huge RAM
(128 MB) and
relatively fast processor (400 MHz ARM).

So it is probably too big and too slow for use on your little Bens. 

Probably it will be necessary to write custom software for this purpose to
get satisfying
performance (no, I don't want to try do it - I have lot of work with
rewriting of my own
software for use on the Ben :-\  ).
