FreeRTOS+TCP is still in the lab
FreeRTOS+TCP is already used in commercial products and we encourage you to try it yourself. Be aware however that we are still refining its design, and the source code and documentation do not yet meet Real Time Engineers Ltd's strict quality standards.
Please use the forum for support, feedback and ideas, or contact us directly if you have a specific business interest.

NBNS

NBNS (sometimes called WINS) stands for NetBIO Name Service, which is a protocol for name resolution.

NBNS performs the same function as LLMNR, but using UDP broadcast packets instead of multi cast packets. Browsers normally only attempt to use NBNS after attempts to use LLMNR have failed.

ipconfigUSE_NBNS must be set to 1 in FreeRTOSIPConfig.h for NBNS to be enabled. As with LLMNR, the application writer must provide the xApplicationDNSQueryHook() callback function which takes a character pointer as a parameter and returns pdTRUE if the name passed into the function matches a name used to identify the node.
