Or EPOC-to-SIBO, if you prefer.
I've seen a program that one can install on an EPOC16 machine with infra-red capability, which allows it to talk to an EPOC32 machine through infra-red. Was there ever one that would work the other way around, or did I dream it? I had thought there was an EPOC32 program that would talk to an EPOC16 machine.
My problem is with the Siena. It has no Comms program built in. Only my Linux box has a serial port, so using PsiWin to talk to the Siena is problematic. I had figured out the easiest way to get a program only my Siena would be to download it onto an EPOC32 machine and beam it across - if I can get the Siena talking to my EPOC32 machines. Sadly I don't have a 3c or a 3mx or the problem would have been more easily solved!

I severely doubt that what you're asking is possible. IR transfers on the Siena and 3c were, AFAIK limited to contact records and plain text at a pinch. No way would a binary make it over.... Sorry. I think the Siena's had its day in this respect. Or use a PC, of course and fiddle with PsiWin!!!
Thanks Steve! I've just played with my Siena and confirmed it does have the facility to send whole files of any type across to another (EPOC16) Psion on Infra-red. At the moment I have no other IR-capable EPOC16 machine for it to talk to.
However, Christoph Pulster of http://www.pulster.de/ has come to the rescue and has kindly sent me an old 3c. Once that arrives I'll be able to get files onto that from the Linux box using Comms/minicom and then beam them across to the Siena. Then there'll be no stopping me!
