     -f            Print the name of the IrDA frame device that should be used
                   to access the frames.

     -H            Turn on DTR/CTS flow control.  By default, no flow control
                   is done.

     -h            Turn on RTS/CTS flow control.  By default, no flow control

     Only the super-user may attach a network interface.

     The frame driver is detached by killing the irdaattach process.

           irdaattach tty00
           ircomm -Y -d `irdaattach -p -f /dev/tty02`

     Messages indicating that the specified interface does not exist, the
     requested address is unknown, or that the user is not privileged but
     tried to alter an interface's configuration.
