I didn’t get a reply to my previous question regarding IrDA support, so
I’ll ask again… >
I’d like to know if anyone has done anything related to getting IrDA
up and running, and whilst I’m pipe-dreaming, what about Bluetooth?
Anyone even thinking about this stuff?
well, i bought one IrDA port some time ago and connected it to my pc
through standart irda interafce (5 pins on motherboard). in bios (award)
i configured my second com port as irda port and now i have two com ports:
com1 (0x3F8) as rs-232 interface and com2 (0x2F8) as IrDA interface. i.e.
you access irda port on hardware level with standart uart 16550 interface →
Dev.ser32 works fine with it.
testing is very easy - start qtalk connected to irda com port, for example
#qtalk -m /dev/ser2 for me, switch on irda device if it has power button,
and try to establishe link with some device that supports irda interface.
my cell phone works fine for me this way during link establishment
it sends some data packets and you can see it with attached terminal.
so it works well.
next question is support of irda porotocols stack. here i can only say that
i’v never saw such software for qnx4. but at least you can freely download
all needed specifications from www.irda.com and write your own stack if
it is really needed. or ask someone to do that
hope i bring a little light in this question
ps: don’t ask me about the manufacturer, i know only it costs me $6 usd
and came without any manuals or user guides, just pure piece of hwd
