Look into developement kits from palm IRDA is basically just a commport and it sends comm strings you have to know what the codes are the invoke a item recieving information and sending informations. For example a name may be used with a start character and end character like /nkplonk/n you have to know the device that you are talking to. You could also open Hyperterminal and send info to the irda to see what it looks like coming to the computer but going to the device youll have to know device specific codes.
