Chapter 144. Networking Stack Features

Since this networking package is based on BSD code, it is very complete and robust. The eCos implementation includes support for the following protocols:

  • IPv4
  • UDP
  • TCP
  • ICMP
  • raw packet interface
  • Multi-cast addressing
  • IPv6 (including UDP, ICP, ICMP)

These additional features are also present in the package, but are not supported:

  • Berkeley Packet Filter
  • Uni-cast support
  • Multi-cast routing
