Can anyone give me an explanation of the following?

And this it an error message from the operating system. Not seeing your
full debug output I can't say where the exact reason is but I belive it is
fd = socket(AF_IRDA, SOCK_STREAM, 0);
which returns -1.


FreeBSD doesn't implement AF_IRDA and basically any of the IrDA stack. The birda port provides some binary utilities, but no API's for gnokii to use (header files & libraries). So, my suggestion to Tiarnan would be to read through the birda programs, extract the relevant code and modify gnokii to interface to it. Since I have never used birda, I can't be of any more help though.
