    Help with infra red port


    I have been trying for the past several days to set up a connection with my infrared port under RedHat. It is on a laptop with built-in IR, and Linux recognizes it when I go to the Hardware browser. However whenever I try to set up a connection with it, it isn't listed as one of the choices. I'd greatly appreciate it if somebody could help me out setting up a connection with my IR port.

    Thanks,

    lakerdonald

    It isn't what I'm looking for

    I downloaded it and installed it to my computer, but it didn't include any support for printing. Other than programs to dump incoming packets and to ping other IR enabled computers, all it really had was a crude way to exchange messages and a program to communicate with a Psion PDA. Where can I get support for printing with IR?
