[NTLK] HP95lx SIR file exchange for Newton?

Here's an odd question! I recently (for $6!) picked up an old HP 95LX Palmtop, and am just figuring out what it can do. It has a built in IR port that uses the HP SIR protocol, 2400bps only. (Is that the same as Sharp ASK IR? I'm not sure.) Apparently it can do file exchange with some SIR compatible devices, eg the Ipaq. But I'm wondering if it can do so with a Newton as well. I suspect it might be easier with a Newton 1.x device... but has anyone out there tried file exchange over IR with an HP 95LX (or other HP palmtop)? An attempt this morning, putting the two boxes side by side and following the instructions I found here on the "Palmtop Paper" site failed...
