1 Introduction

This specification defines the Point to Point Protocol (PPP) over Infrared Data Association (IrDA) Dialup Protocol (PPP Over IrDA Dialup Protocol), and includes contributions from Microsoft, Ericsson, and Nokia. The PPP Over IrDA Dialup Protocol is a deprecated protocol that specifies how to initialize and use a modem over an infrared link. This protocol enables the scenario in which a computer with infrared capabilities has network access by using a modem via an infrared link.

Sections 1.5, 1.8, 1.9, 2, and 3 of this specification are normative. All other sections and examples in this specification are informative.
