Hello,
I am trying to sync my Handspring Visor Edge running Palm OS 3.5 with Z C1000 (running pdaXii13v2). After some study I came to conclusion that this is what I should do:

$ /etc/rc.d/init.d/irda start
$ irattach /dev/ircomm
$ ircp -r

However it does not work. ircp hangs with "Waiting for incoming signal" message. The Palm device says that it did not find any receiving device.

I also tried to use xircp. It obviously starts the daemon silently itself. Trying to send a small file file, the Palm device detected a communication attempt, which finally did not succeed. Palm device timeouts and xircp says "Connecting...failed" immediately after the press of the Send button. An attempt to pres the Receive button in xircp, it does not receive anything and hangs. It can be only killed.

From these experiments, I guess the IrDA port is correctly associated. Maybe it's the port baud rate which is wrong, no clue. I did not find any place where to correctly configure it sad.gif.

I would really appreciate if somebody who already went this road would give me an advice on this.

Thanks a lot.

Finally solved by a naive experimenting and almost an accident (playing with any tool having ir* in their name). As I see there are many references around the Net about this problem and no direct solution, so here I am posting what worked finally:

$ /etc/rc.d/init.d/irda start
$ irobex_palm3

So "irobex_palm3" instead of "ircp -r". And no need to irattach the port. The irda daemon does it itself (on /dev/ttyS1). And of course the openobex package should be installed beforehand smile.gif.

Hi,

I was searching for this since years...
And it works between 2 Zaurus (one with Cacko, the other with pdaXrom) !

Thank you so much smile.gif
