Windows Infrared Port Programming

For posterity (and lovers of Deja, like myself), I wanted to let everyone
know that I figured out the connection issues and am now down to figuring
out the command language.

On my particular system, the IR port is configured as COM4, 115200 bps.
USPP has some issue that makes it throw an exception when trying to read
available data.  I've since installed pySerial
( and it works great.  The phone responds
to AT commands, like a modem.

Thanks for all the help, guys!
