I am no "guru" and I can only make some suggestions for what they are worth:
Have you enabled IR config in your computer BIOS? It seems that you can
select COM2 (/dev/ttys1) to be either an ordinary COM port or an IR port.
Your config details refer to /dev/ttys0 or COM1. Is that the port you need?
The standard seems to be that IR is on COM2, but I am not experienced enough
to say that it is always the case.
You may need to change the IRQ to match the COM port. I think that the
standard config file does this for you.
