First Install The package
# urpmi irda-utils
On HP NC6000 you need to edit /etc/sysconfig/irda:
Download ircp-tray from here. It will ask for dependencies like OBEX utilities and something else missing.
One more step, you need to redirect this:
# echo 9600 > /proc/sys/net/irda/max_baud_rate
(you can put it on an boot script to do this once)
Put in System > Preferences > Sessions
Ircp-tray command to start at boot.
