Transparent Peer to Peer TCP/IP over IrDA
Keyword(s): wireless; radio; MAC; protocol; 802.11
Abstract: This paper describes a novel approach to using TCP/IP applications over IrDA. First, we look into why so few applications are available over IrDA and what is necessary to make the use of those applications attractive to end-users. Then, we present a new scheme that enable the use of the IrDA communication layer by those applications in a transparent fashion with minimal overhead. We describe the various components necessary to implement such a scheme, IrNET, the name resolver and the discovery manager, and explain how we have implemented those components under Linux. We finish by showing a few examples of use of those components with real applications.
