    By some reason my laptop can't communicate with either my printer or another laptop (both with IR port).
    Both laptops (with XP home edition) are able to find eachother names (so there is a communication established) but the file transfer won't work.
    All settings are indentic (the IR hardware is from the same manufactor!), even the driver is just the same. The only difference is that by installing the printerdriver, a program called XConnect 1.2 (and PrintConnect) has been installed to my laptop.
    The other laptop is able to use the printer (by IR communication)without installing any driver.
    So I uninstalled XConnect but the problem stays.
    After hours of searching and changing settings I'm rather desperate.... help!
