Mobile to pc infra red connection

  Sparky3327 12:59 06 Jan 2005

I recently got a SonyEriccson k500i mobile phone with an infra red connection. Fortunately my pc (on XP)has an infra red facility too. However, I cannot get the 2 to communicate. Device Manager says the pc's ifra red device is working properly and my phone tries to transmit but to no avail.
My phone's handbook says consult my pc handbook, but I don't have one.
I've looked inside the pc but can't even see where the infra red bit is and I'm totally lost.
Any ideas?

Check the firewall settings... you will need to allow the infra red connection. an infra red connection is the same as a network or internet connection

Have done, but no progress.
Do I need to create a new Network Connection?
I've tried doing it but I don't really know what I'm doing.
