Connecting Nokia 8250 and Thinkpad r51 over irda


What am I missing trying to get my nokia 8250 and my Thinkpad R51 to talk over the irda port?

I have compiled the kernel with IR support.

What I am trying:
put my phone into IR receive mode and put it in front of the IR port

irattach /dev/ttyS1 -s **no output or error messages

ifconfig irda0 up

Code:
root@darkstar:~# ifconfig
irda0     Link encap:IrLAP  HWaddr 00:00:00:00
          UP RUNNING NOARP  MTU:2048  Metric:1
          RX packets:200 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:3436 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:8
          RX bytes:5800 (5.6 Kb)  TX bytes:53004 (51.7 Kb)

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:69 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:69 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:8994 (8.7 Kb)  TX bytes:8994 (8.7 Kb)
and then irdadump shows:
Code:
root@darkstar:~# irdadump

11 packets received by filter
irdadump just keeps on running until I kill it with ctrl-c.

After a short time the phone automatically goes out of IR receive mode, should I mount the phone somewhere or what next?

Many thanks for any ideas,

I have tried the gnokii tools but the dialog hangs on "working".

If anyone has any other ideas it would be much appreciated,

OK, I got it fixed.

I changed "connect = infrared" to "connect = irda" in /root/.gnokiirc and then xgnokii connects very quickly and gives a handy set of tools to send sms, manage phone #s, calendar etc --cool
