I have two Linux machines with IrDa ports - desktop with Linux Mandrake 9.0
and on board integrated SIR port and Laptop Scenic mobile 510 with Linux
Both ports working fine. I'm able to exchange data between machines using
ircomm and pppd.
So, I determine to try using IrLAN. "Modprobe irlan" adds an interface
irlan0, but "ifconfig irlan0 192.168.100.1" hangs up console and I have to
kill ifconfig from another console.
I was looking for solution of this problem and I found a couple of similar
subscriptions like this one in the archive of this list. Mainly some
subscriptions from Eugene Crosser and Stephan Herrmann form the beginning of
the 2001 year.
Unfortunately, I did'nt found any solution.
Please, where is the problem and how can I solve it?
