mTCP requires a packet driver? Does the packet driver need to support extended or high performance functions, or, just the basic functions described in the specification you link to?


plus some code to receive packets and call the link layer software?

Doesn't seem too bad? Should be fairly straightforward to implement an ethernet interface with this type of driver. Of course, that would take me months, so spool up a VM with an assembler...

but, there are a number of small ethernet modules that could be slapped on the jr bus.

(I think this was talk from 10 years ago, but I think over the past day, I've incremented the while() loop in my brain!)

For reference, Mike confirms that the packet driver only needs these basic functions for mTCP.
