For several month i'm trying ocassionaly to connect my Nokia 6210 (and also a 6110) to my laptop. I'm quity sure that my irda-port is working. If i do a cat to ttyS1 i can "see" my irda-port blinking (using a DDC-Camera). But i've no succes connecting my phone to that port.

When starting gnokii there is just an activity to my irda-port if i choose "connection = serial" in gnokiirc (my infrared-port os assigned to com2). Any entry like irda or infrared will _not_ work. When placing my phone in front of it - menu infrared enabled - and starting gnokii --<something> nothing happens. My gnokiirc looks something like:

port = /dev/ttyS1
model = 6210
connection = serial

I'm also not sure about selecting SIR or FIR in the bios of my laptop, but "seeing" the phone sending data i guess it is using SIR. May someone also complain, which kernel-options to choose for compiling linux (needed for gnokii to get my phone connected)?

I'm usind GNOKII Version 0.4.3, Linux 2.4.20 (actually 2.4.20-gentoor-r1) running on an up-to-date gentoo box.
Also tried GNOKII Version 0.5.0pre1 whith no success...

Any help?


here is some sample output:
