IRDAPING(8)                                                        IRDAPING(8)



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/dis-
       covery|sed s/.*daddr://\'" It works fine when there is only one discovered client.
