Configuring an Infrared Port for DirectIR

Although recent versions of Windows include an IrDA stack that provides compatibility with many different infrared hardware types, the older Nokia 61xx range of phones is not compatible with IrDA communication via the Windows drivers. This means that full infrared support using LogoManager cannot be guaranteed.

However, many users will still be able to configure their IR ports to work with their Nokia, but this normally requires the removal of the IrDA Infrared drivers.

Note 1: when configuring LogoManager you must select the physical COM port to which the device is connected, not the virtual IR ports listed in device manager.
Note 2: the 8810, 8210 and 8850 can only communicate in DirectIR mode when in 2 player snake mode.
