I second this approach. We have found bugs in the KA9Q stack used earlier.
Because I wanted TCP/IP in RTEMS before it was officially available, I
bough a commercial TCP/IP stack and was SOOOOOOOOO disappointed.
I think that networked equipement will soon require a lot of
TCP/IP applications (WEB server, FTP server, may be Java...) so
having a "clean complete" TCP/IP stack is a guaranty of evolutivity.
So eric thanks again and yes you made the right choice (AFAIKT :-))
