Why is IPv6 in RedBoot not possible?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
We're adding IPv6 support to our eCos-based products. The basic IPv6 support in the "full-up" application code is working fine (at least with static and link-local addressing). The next big question mark is RedBoot. I need to either add IPv6 support to RedBoot or make some basic changes to the way our product works (specifically how the application is updated in the field). Many years back Andrew Lunn stated that IPv6 support in RedBoot was not possibleP From: Andrew Lunn <andrew.lunn <at> ascom.ch> Subject: Re: hello..I have a problem about make redboot suport IPv6 Newsgroups: gmane.os.ecos.general Date: 2003-05-26 07:24:20 GMT (8 years, 34 weeks, 4 days, 16 hours and 12 minutes ago) > No. Redboot has its own little TCP/IP stack.

I realize it might be a fair amount of work to implement some sort of IPv6 support in RedBoot, but I'm wondering what would make it "not possible". -- Grant Edwards grant.b.edwards Yow!
