Sharing connection over IrDA, USB, Serial

What a huge pain in the ass IrDA is. It just doesn’t work properly over here in terms of trying to share an internet connection via Linux and my PalmV PDA.

I was more lucky using the USB and serial cable though –after 3 hours of work– trying to figure out why the PalmV can’t see the pppd…

Apparently it needed the “chap” attribute set in the pppd line, while no tutorial online is using that on their suggested pppd command line.

IrDA is still unresolved though. I tried both through pppd using the ircomm and irnet devices, none of the two work.
