Siemens C65 and IRDA


Hi!

I have an old Siemens mobile phone, which contains some pics I want to transfer to my computer. I am trying to get IrDA working, but in vain. Here is the problem:

1) modprobe ircomm-tty
=> OK

2) irattach /dev/ttyS1 -s
=> everything seems OK, but I get no output whatsoever

2) irdadump
=> get the correct output, I can see that mobile is recognized:
=> 08:13:23.664230 xid:rsp a8761f5a < 07000360 S=6 s=5 SIEMENS C65 hint=b124 [ PnP Modem Fax IrCOMM IrOBEX ] (28)


But, I have trouble finding the device that irdadump uses... I have tried /dev/ttyS1, but irdadump -i /dev/ttyS1 gives just "ioctl: No such device". Does anybody knows how I find the correct device?

And: Is there any way to find out which chipset my IR is?

oki, follow the following instructions:

1)first edit the following file: /etc/modprobe.d/irda-utils
this is what mine looks like (not sure that all the lines are necessary, but it works for me at least)
Code:
alias char-major-10-187 irnet

install smc-ircc /sbin/modprobe smsc-ircc2
install toshoboe /sbin/modprobe donauboe

alias irda0

alias tty-ldisc-11 irtty
alias char-major-161 ircomm-tty
alias char-major-60 ircomm_tty

2)reboot
3)modprobe irda
4)modprobe ircomm-tty
5)irattach /dev/ttyS1 -s
6)irdadump
=> the mobile phone should be in IR-port's proximity
=> you should now see a string which identifies your mobile

voila....

now, use something like Wammu or KMobileTools to access your mobile

the device ircomm module is using is /dev/ircomm0

If something went wrong, please let me know

edit: oops, sorry, the last two lines of the /etc/modprobe.d/irda-utils that I posted were not actually part of the code. Have now edited them away in this post, so everything should now be OK. Hope this helps you
