Not all demo projects will include this example. If this example is
included in a demo project then it may be necessary to set
mainCREATE_TCP_CLI_TASKS to 1 at the top of the project's
main.c source file to include the CLI in the build.
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.
The example creates a FreeRTOS+CLI
command console that uses a TCP port for its input and output, and can
be connected to using a basic telnet client. Note the basic example
implementation is primarily a dumb terminal, and does not implement
terminal control codes over and above backspace and delete.
The telnet client built into desktop operating systems offers a convenient
connection method, as demonstrated in the image below. Enter 'quit' to
close a session.
First connecting to the CLI, then running the 'help' command
