hi,
I have a gold-120 usb dongle. This thing seems to be considered as a Ma600 under linux.
--> http://www.prodigy-tools.com/irda.htm
I have tried to configure it but the process fail early.
When i plug the thing, i got the following on dmesg

ohci_hcd 0000:00:02.0: wakeup
usb 1-3: new full speed USB device using address 2
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for Generic
usbcore: registered new driver usbserial_generic
usbcore: registered new driver usbserial
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial Driver core v2.0
drivers/usb/serial/usb-serial.c: USB Serial support registered for PL-2303

usbcore: registered new driver pl2303
drivers/usb/serial/pl2303.c: Prolific PL2303 USB to serial adaptor driver v0.11

well since here i have tried many thing i have found on the net but nothing have work at all.
the most common is 
irattach /dev/usb/ttyUSB0 -d ma600 -s
irdadump give me nothing ...
can anyone send me some step-by-step idea to help me ?
thanks

Greetings:

Please feel free to redirect me to another forum if appropriate.
I have also made a quick examination of the archive but did not see a post
relevant to this inquiry.

I am using Linux to connect to Palm/OS 5.2 via ir.
SIR works fine but my FIR attempts have not been successful.
This appears to be because 5.2 does not support IrNET.

Is it possible to activate FIR on the Palm without the need for a mediation
device such as those offered by Clarinet?

If so, would such strategy involve a PPP link absent serial framing
between the two devices?

Thanks

Irdadump: Little- / Big-Endian

Hi,

I just had a deeper look at the source-code of irdadump, as it's the 
only part of the irda-utils which doesn't cross-compile for arm without 
additional attention.
I discovered that the source- and destination-addresses ('frame->saddr' 
and 'frame->daddr') are converted _from_ Little-Endian. Which seems odd 
to me, because network byte ordering is supposed to be Big-Endian (isn't 
it?), and also the address as listed by ifconfig is byte-switched 
compared to that shown by irdadump.

Suggestion: I think converting _from_ Big Endian (e.g. ntohs() or 
GINT32_FROM_BE() in glib'ish) should be the way it's done. Then, the 
ifconfig-address should be right.

Thanks for your comments.
Simon.

PS: What's the reason irdadump is based on glib?? It's annoyingly hard 
to compile that for arm...

Documentation for Sharp UIRCC from Toshiba laptops


Hi,

I'm still searching for whoever has the documentation for this IR core,
so the FIR support can be finished.

thanks,

As far as I know neither PalmOS 4 nor 5 has any support for FIR (etc),
they only support SIR.  (I presume version 6, Cobalt, does support the
faster rates).

The support for IrNet is orthogonal to this.  IrNet is layered over
TinyTP-LMP-LAP-PHY, so will work whatever physical layer type is being
used.

BTW, I've a not-quite-finished IrNet Virtual Serial Driver for OS4, if
anyone can tell me how to compile it for OS5+ARM I can have a go a
porting it.

Thank you for responding to my inquiry.

It appears to me that the link layer  is cueing upon a hint from the Palm
and beginning negotiation before realizing that kernel(et al) support
is not generated.

Please clarify IrDA queries

Dear Sir,

Greetings !

I came across your article about IrDA while I was searching for some
specific information. Please guide me with some suggestions / ideas
based on my following clarification.

Please analyze the following :

I have a PC / Laptop  ( WinXP or Win 2K )  with 2 USB ports, each
being connected to an IR Device. I want to know the effective data
rate transfer ( calculation of time in transferring few KBs or MBs of
data ) between these two IR devices. What are the concepts do I need
to know in order to achieve the result ?    Will there be a wireless
connection setup by merely connecting IR devices to USB Ports ?

Hence, in view of the above, I want to develop a test software in C
program which
can execute the time / data rate in transferring information ( files
in KBs or MBs )
between these two IR devices.

In which platform do you think it is viable to work upon ?

Kindly, I request you to furnish relevant details and oblige. I would
be grateful for your timely reply.

Looking forward to hear from you,

linux kernel bug report

Hello there,

I just tried to compile the Linux Kernel version 2.6.11.12
with the most excellent Intel C compiler. It said

net/irda/irnet/irnet_irda.c(699): warning #175: subscript out of range
      self->rname[NICKNAME_MAX_LEN + 1] = '\0';
      ^
But

[dcb <at> localhost linux-2.6.11.12]$ find . -name \*.h -print | xargs grep 
NICKNAME_MAX_LEN
./net/irda/irnet/irnet.h:  char                 rname[NICKNAME_MAX_LEN + 1];
./include/net/irda/discovery.h:#define NICKNAME_MAX_LEN 21
[dcb <at> localhost linux-2.6.11.12]$

Suggest code rework.

Regards

David Binderman
