Encapsulating TCP/IP in irDA protocol -

By BJackey13 ·
Is there anyway to encapsulate either TCP/IP or IPX/SPX packets and transmit them over a laptop's IR connection? I'm trying to create an IR TCP/IP connection but the IR protocol is the only one Windows 2000 or 98 allows you to bind to the IR device.
Any help appreciated

It's possible. Users of Palm OS 3.0 can use IrLink 1.5 to perform those functions. If anybody has the time and skill to whip up a Windows driver, more information on the Infrared Data Association's irLAN standard is available on their site:

hope that helps!

I guess a slightly better site to check out would be this one:

Pay close attention to the mentions of irDA and irLAN protocols.

I don't think there's a way to do that yet with Windows, but maybe u can try this alternative:

An irDA connectionion to a LAN-based PC, controlling the PC from the irDA device using PC Anywhere, or other remote control software. Then you have networking and can transfer files in between irDA device and PC at 115k max....
