I'm currently trying to get my Z (running on Cacko 1.22) to talk to my Nokia 6310i via IR to connect to the Internet.

I read a posting here saying that the baud rate can be set from within the network settings. Is this perhaps under a different ROM flavour?

I've had a look at the file /etc/irda.conf which allows different baud rates for different devices to be set up. However, if this is the method of doing it, how does the Z know what device it's talking to if it needs to set the baud rate to talk to it?

By my recolection (from setting this on my now sold Palm) I need to set 19,200.

Can some kind soul please help?

Forgive me if I sound like a numpty, but I just can't get this going. I'm not a newbie to Linux ... been using it for a few years, but can't figure this bit out.

I have SL-C860 with Cacko ROM 1.22
Running on a Mandrake Linux 10.0 PC (2.6.3 custom kernel) with QT Desktop 1.7 installed
Also got Windows 98 with QT Desktop 1.7

I understand that since sharp "modified" the Qtopia storage for the PIM that it will no longer sync to those apps, but I've been reading on these forums and else where that with the Opie apps installed, QT Desktop can be used with this, since they use XML.

However, even without this fact I still have a problem:

What I can do ...
I can connect Z via USB and get IP over USB working happily
(using as Z IP and as PC IP)
I can ping both Z from PC and PC from Z.
I can ssh both from Z to PC and PC to Z.
I can mount //zaurus/home on the PC
I can mount //zaurus/system on the PC
I can do all these things when the Z is connected to my WiFi network too

I've managed to import my Palm calendar / contacts etc. (by the way ... discovered that the new Palm Desktop software, 4.14 crashes QT Desktop because it's got a different file format for the enhanced PIM applications - had to revert to an older one).

I've setup the QT Desktop Settings to point to the correct connection (i.e. either USB or LAN depending on how the Z is set up).

What I can't do for the life of me ...
Get the sync buttons on QT Desktop (running in Linux) to illuminate.
They illuminate in Windows, but I can't appear do anything with them.
In both, the connection status in the bottom right of the QT Desktop window is always red!

I've been hunting through Google and Forums for days now and am drawing a blank.

Could you please (no ... really, _please_) tell me how the 2 actually communicate. I only have the Z manual in Japanese, which is no use to me. I've tried all sorts of things, but QT Desktop just never illuminates these buttons.

How does QT Desktop contact the Z?
Is it all done via port 137 (samba / windows port)?
Does QT Desktop do an smbmount in the background when the sync button is pressed?
Is it done via ssh?
Do I also have to hit the "Start Sync" button on the "PC Link" app on the Z?
If so, when?
Do I have to stand on one leg and rub my head when launching any sync apps?

Ok, getting silly now because it's doing my head in :-(

So can anyone help me out please?
