Hello, I have IBM Thinkpad a22m, I would like to dial out using my Nokia 6210 phone. I tried it on this notebook with freebsd, it worked with almost no problems. Since the IRDA support is much different, I have really trouble making it work under Debian GNU/Linux. I deleted freebsd because of some hardware problems and since there are experimental packages for KDE 3.0, I like debian here. So, infraport is enabled in the BIOS, findchip reports this: NSC,PC87338,11.2,0x2e,0x2f8,0x2f8,3,3,1,0,1 I have latest testing 2.4.18 kernel (from woody) and: ii irda-common 0.9.14-17 IrDA management utilities ii irda-tools 0.9.14-17 IrDA handling tools this is the irda0 part of ifconfig: irda0 Link encap:IrLAP HWaddr 7c:ab:cb:4e UP RUNNING NOARP MTU:2048 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:8 RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:30 (30.0 b) modules: jurajbug:/home/juraj# lsmod|grep ir ircomm-tty 30112 0 (autoclean) ircomm 13180 0 [ircomm-tty] irtty 7296 2 (autoclean) irda 137996 1 (autoclean) [ircomm-tty ircomm irtty] I've read the Infrared-HOWTO, etc. I'm unable to load nsc-ircc.o module, I don't even know if I need it. On freebsd, I just used /dev/ttyS1. My kernel reports it has found ttyS1 port: [root@idoru juraj]# dmesg|grep tty ttyS01 at 0x02f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A but playing with irattach (irattach /dev/ttyS1 -s 1, irattach irda0 -s 1, irattach nsc-ircc -s 1) yields to no results. jurajbug:/home/juraj# cat /proc/net/irda/discovery IrLMP: Discovery log: (i.e. discovery log is always empty). My question is -- if some of you have tried this (to any ,,serial'' device). What is the proper syntax of irattach (what do I attach where)? I tried communicating through /dev/ircomm0 and /dev/ttyS1 ports using minicom. No results. If I'm able to send some AT command, I will figure out the rest. Thank you, Juraj. P.S.: Just switched from Mandrake and FreeBSD to Debian, it has the nicest way of building the kernel.
