FreeRTOS-Sockets warning

Hello, I just wanted to show this piece of warning that I’m constantly seeing with the FreeRTOS-TCP libraries.

Hello Maty - can you please provide some more information about which branch/tag/commit hash you are on and the compiler along with version you are using. Thank you.

Hi Nikhil, I downloaded the latest FreeRTOS not too long ago, directly from the FreeRTOS website. It says FreeRTOS Kernel V10.4.6. at the top inside FreeRTOS.h. Inside of FreeRTOS_Sockets.c it is FreeRTOS+TCP V2.4.0.

I am using Rowley CrossWorks which is using GCC 11.3 Release 1.

Hey Maty,

Looks like the following part of the code in FreeRTOS_IP_Private.h is either not visible to your compiler or not enabled:

    #if ( ipconfigSUPPORT_SELECT_FUNCTION == 1 ) || ( ipconfigUSE_TCP == 1 ) || ( ipconfigDNS_USE_CALLBACKS == 1 )
        extern ipDECL_CAST_PTR_FUNC_FOR_TYPE( ListItem_t );
        extern ipDECL_CAST_CONST_PTR_FUNC_FOR_TYPE( ListItem_t );

Could you please share your FreeRTOSIPConfig.h file?

Hey @tony-josi-aws, I really apologize for the long delay. It’s been quite hectic. I checked my FreeRTOSIPConfig.h and I don’t have any of those defined. We use the FreeRTOS-Plus strictly only for UDP packets.

Hey @Maty ,

This warning has been fixed in the latest versions of FreeRTOS-Plus-TCP. Please update to the latest to get rid of the warning.

--------------- EDIT - More details ----------------
Hey @Maty,

This commit fixes the warning in the FreeRTOS-Plus-TCP repo. The release of the FreeRTOS-Plus-TCP library after this commit is v3.0.0.

If you are using FreeRTOS repo then please update to FreeRTOSv202212.00 which includes FreeRTOS+TCP V3.1.0 and FreeRTOS Kernel V10.5.1

Thanks for your help!
