There is very popular (at least in Poland) glucometer Accu-chek active.
One can download results stored in memory of this device using IR link.
Producer of this device (Roche diagnostics) sells "special" and
expensive adapter for this puprose. One guy from OpenZaurus community
reverse engeneered communication between PC and glucometer. This is
simple 9600 8N1 link but with IR as transport media. It is possible to
communicate with glucometer when You have simple SIR dongle (for example
thous integrated on some motherboards or connected to serial port) and
You send commands to ttySx where dongle is connected (without loading
ANY Irda related modules or touching irattach).
Here comes the question:
Is it possible to utilise FIR IrDA equipment to "speak" with such
device? To use FIR You have to free ttySx with setserial, so sending
command to ttySx makes no sense. After inserting proper driver module
there is line in dmesg like irda0 registered, but there is no irda0
"raw" device created.
Any hints are welcom
