i already have a socket, tcp/ip connection using uIP between my ARM7 LPC2387 and a server. Now I want to make the communication over HTTP protocol and then with HTTPS . Data collected by the sensors are processed by LPC2387 which further needs to be sent to server for further analysis.
Please help me with guidance steps and code lines.
I don’t really have any preference for lwIP. I just want my connection to be a HTTP connection, then HTTPS, where already it is a TCP/IP socket connection. My product already uses FreeRTOS , its uIP modules.
I’m not aware of the HTTP driver for client sde .
And I would love to have a provision of WolfSSL .Please guide me further.
I, individually am new to using FreeRTOS, so guidance with even smaller steps would be wonderful.
LwIP network stack is a total P.O.S. compared to +TCP…
LwIP its designed to work on footprints that are crazy small (by todays standards)
LwIP will fight you all the way when used with a multi tasking OS, it was designed NOT to need one.
Having never written an HTTP server, I actually used the LwIP HTTP server as a flowchart template for my +TCP implementation.
