I have made a start on this port, though I have a long way to go, and I have been checking back on the FreeRTOS labs page every so often to see if there are any new developments.
I now see:
“Latest: The next FreeRTOS+TCP Labs release will include impressive server implementations for four different MCU and MPU platforms!”
So that leaves me with some questions…
Would the LPC4088 or a close relative be one of these?
How long before the next release, and should I wait before continuing?
Will it be closely integrated with the new 8.2.0 release of FreeRTOS? (I notice that the flavour of 8.1.2 downloaded with the TCP examples is slightly different to that in the main release.)
It would be good to see some examples of the NetworkInterface.c functions that deal more directly with hardware than the simulator versions.
I have the basic initialisation in place and I am now working on the cable-detect/link bring-up. I’m not clear what should be done if the link goes down. Do I tell the stack and will it re-attempt the initialisation thus calling the original init/bring-up code?
Ultimately, I want to integrate the VNC server of the Segger ‘emWin’ diaplay manager as well as an http and an ftp interface for monitoring and file up/download.
