This page has a nice howto on how to connect via windows on a laptop.

I followed the directions as far as seemed possible... putting in the init string, username and password

I try pppd -d. a paatern of text types out, repeats a few times and stops/ crashin (locking up) the terminal--aterm or rxvt)

it seems that IR is simply not working, but I really can't tell. I have the haunting feeling that I'm missing something obvious.

help? (yes, I searched the forum...and mostly found other people who coudn't connect or whose solutions seemed not to apply)

no joy. starting irda 1st certainly starts irda ( a good start lol), but pppd -d or pppd modem have the same result..... string o symbols repeted then a locked term.

any other ideas? there is also the usb option, but it seems dependant on a windows drdiver....

I have this working on my SL6000, and I discovered that I couldn't get it to work using ppp from the shell - for some reason I have to use the pppdialer app. On the command line everything appears to work until it stops just short of actually doing anything!

It's exactly the opposite of wireless etc which can't be configured with graphical tools - the only way this would work is to use the tools straight out of the box...

using the ppp dialer, I get:

(+cgdcont=1,"IP","cellular1wap,"",0,0^M)
expect (OK)
alarm
Failed
Connect script failed.



This isn't terribly useful to me-- I have no real idea if the phone isn't getting the ir signal, if I'm using a wrong APN. protocol, connect speed, etc.

Ideas on how to get more info?? (or how to make it work if anyone has a blinding flash of insight....?)

Put "debug" and "dump" in your ppp options file to get more info. By the looks of it, Chero's answer was closer than mine - the Zaurus isn't getting any response from the phone...

I guess I'll gove gnokii a shot then

edit: suggestions about where I start with gnokii?? gnokii --monitor? --sndtmfstring?

I really have no clue here. I'm pretty sure I don't want to talk to the todo list, though...

I also got this error when I tried to configure my Nolkia 6310 for GPRS over IrDA.
The workaround is as follows:
Configure the settings which you would give via AT+cgdcont directly in the phone (GPRS access point, APN or similar, just enter the string "cellular1wap" in the corresponding phone config dialog.). There are several "slots" for such configurations. If the first one is free, use that one.
Then, use only "ATZ" as the init string, and use the dial string *99***1# (where 1 is the number of that "slot", so use 2 if you used the second "slot" for example).

Seems as if the Nokia phones have some problem with thie cgdcont string.

Good luck!

ok.. that kinda did something... the Z seemed to occasionally "see" the phoine--though I think I might be wrong about how the phone contacts the isp.

anyway, here is the log from querying the modem in windows 2000. Maybe it will give someone a flash of insight? So far, I'm still not getting the Z to connect.

I think the "cellular1wap" bit is wrong....

Perhaps you've already tried this, but maybe there is a simple problem...

Windows:

Zaurus:

... is missing the 'AT' at the start (Windows usually puts this in automatically, but mostly Linux/pppd just does exactly what you tell it). pppd times out waiting for a response because the phone won't respond to anything without an AT...

I also see you're missing a closing quote, but maybe that's just a typo?
