       The overall goal of this project is to provide remote  control  service
       on  Linux through Bluetooth, InfraRed, Wi-Fi or just TCP/IP connection.

       anyRemote supports  wide  range  of  modern  cell  phones  like  Nokia,
       SonyEricsson, Motorola and others.

       It  was  developed as thin "communication" layer between Bluetooth (IR,
       Wi-Fi)-capabled phone and Linux, and in theory could be  configured  to
       manage almost any software.

       anyRemote  is  console  application,  but  in  addition  there  are GUI
       front-ends for Gnome and KDE.

            /dev/ttyACM#       (AT mode - cable connection)

            /dev/ircomm#       (AT mode - IR connection)
