Setting the connection type to serial gets me somewhere:

# gnokii --identify
GNOKII Version 0.4.3
IMEI         : (unknown)
Manufacturer : Nokia
Model        : (unknown)
Revision     : (unknown)

However, all attempts to download the phonebook/send SMS time
out, and xgnokii fails to connection to the phone.

This contrasts unfavourable with birda's ircomm:
# ircomm -r -d /dev/cuaa1 -v 1
discovered Nokia 6210, address=63b4, hints=PnP, Modem, Fax, Telephony,
query completed
115200 baud
LAP connected
comm connected

Which seems to know more about the device.  Perhaps gnokii's
IrDA support is Linux specific, in which case my next question
is.... where should I look in the gnokii code to find out what
it sends/receives to the phone for each of the different
functions? Perhaps I can cobble together a FreeBSD port with
working IrDA (there's already one that presumably functions for
data cables).
