I just wish there was a free full TCP/IP implementation out there for
the PIC :) I dread having to write my own.
I've looked at the previously mentioned implementations, not with too
much detail but they seem to have certain problems.. such as you
mentioned.. hardware based or limited features. I want an API library
where I can use standard library calls like in unix to program my
I don't want to only be able to use certain ports, or have to connect
