Hi guys. Yesterday I went into a shop and bought a usb infrared adapter, so that I could upload pics etc. from my mobile phone (Samsung E800) to my computer. First I tried installing it under Winblows. That worked, but the irda device doesn't pick up my phone when I activate infrared and hold it in front of the adapter. As a result, I can't upload to/from the phone. When I tried it on Linux (Mandy 9.1), I came a long way but now I'm stuck. This is the dmesg output when I connect the device:
hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.3-2, assigned address 3
usbserial.c: PL-2303 converter detected
usbserial.c: PL-2303 converter now attached to ttyUSB0 (or usb/tts/0 for devfs)
I then loaded the module pl-2303. Then I installed irda-utils. But now what? I don't understand how to make Linux recognize my phone (using irda-utils?)?
If somebody could help me it would be most appreciated.
