NAME

       irdaping - sends IrDA test frames

SYNOPSIS

       irdaping [ daddr ] [ -s framesize ]

OPTIONS

       daddr ...

       -s framesize ...

DESCRIPTION

       This is a program similar to ping(8). It sends IrDA test frames (added some userdata which
       contains the frame number and the time the frame was sent). You can change the size of the
       frame by using the -s option. To get daddr you may use irdadump.

       irdaping must be run as root or installed setuid root, as it requires root privileges.

EXAMPLES

       irdaping <daddr> [-s <framesize>]

       You may use an alias, which does not use any parameter alias irping="irdaping \`grep daddr
       /proc/net/irda/discovery|sed  s/.*daddr://\`"  It  works  fine  when  there  is  only  one
       discovered client.
