[mapguide-users] WFS Connection from OpenLayers

I have searched the list and Google and have not been able to find what I
need. I am trying to connect to MapGuide (2.5 on test machine but 2.2 on
production machine right now) from OpenLayers 2.12. I know that it would be
easier to use Fusion, but it currently doesn't have the support for Mobile
and that is what I need. Also, I can't use PHP or .NET for any code because
it will be packaged in PhoneGap for a mobile app. Right now I am just trying
to connect to the sample dataset to get things working and also, by actual
data will most likely be served as the same WGS projection. My current code

/map = new OpenLayers.Map({
        div: "map",
        theme: null,
        projection: osmProj,
        displayProjection: wgs,
        maxExtent: extent,
        scales: tempScales,
        controls: [
            new OpenLayers.Control.Attribution(),
            new OpenLayers.Control.TouchNavigation({ dragPanOptions: {
enableKinetic: true } }),

var layer = new OpenLayers.Layer.MapGuide("Sheboygan Tiled Layer", url,
params, options);

var wfsParcels = new OpenLayers.Layer.Vector("WFS Parcels", {
        strategies: [new OpenLayers.Strategy.Fixed()],
        protocol: new OpenLayers.Protocol.WFS({
            //version: "1.1.0",
            srsName: "EPSG:4326",
            featureType: "ns34414117:ParcelsType",
            featureNS: "http://www.opengis.net/gml",
            geometryName: "SHPGEOM"
        styleMap: new OpenLayers.StyleMap({
            strokeWidth: 3,
            strokeColor: "#333333"
        //projection: wgs


With this current code, I get the following error in Chrome Developer Tools:

/Failed to load resource: Origin null is not allowed by

XMLHttpRequest cannot load
Origin null is not allowed by Access-Control-Allow-Origin. index.html:1/

Things I am not sure about if they are correct are the "featureType" &
"featureNS". I got those from the GETCAPABILITIES command. Any thoughts?
