how do I activate the Infrared Port

By freejazz ·
I want to connect my mobile phone (Motorola Timeport) to my PC (Windows 98 SE) using the Infrared port. I have Software manufactured by Starfish called Truesync. I am Not sure if I also need a data cable to connect to the serial COM Port. In any case there is no Inrared Icon in the Control Panel as I am led to believe there is meant to be. So how do I activate the Port and where would the actual Infrared connection be located on the PC?

Boot computer and when the starup screen shows,press the key to enter Setup
Navigate to Advanced menu,check the configuration menu to locate the I/R port,highlight and press enter,and select enable
If you ahve the motherboard manual it would detail the panel to make the change

I have since found out that this procedure was indeed correct for a laptop by I stated that I had a PC so technically speaking It was wide of the mark.
