Under windows the ir port is usually assigned a pseudo serial port number and can be accessed at that port just like any other serial port. The simpliest way to test it is to run a terminal program using the irda port and connect to another windows laptop running a terminal program. If you have the irda set up with the taskbar icon and set it to look for devices it will show as soon as the two machine connect. I have never tried using a terminal program but I have used my laptop to talk to the irda port on my watch and it worked great. I will have to give the port on the CF-01 a try tonight with my laptop and see how it goes.
