The page links below aim to provide a brief introduction to the concepts and terminology of
TCP/IP and UDP/IP networks, and how they relate to the FreeRTOS+TCP implementation.
The pages do nothing more than
provide a top level overview of subjects that could be comprehensive
topics in their own right, so links to external references are also
provided where appropriate.
Do not be put off by the apparent complexity of the subject. FreeRTOS+TCP
takes care of implementing the protocols. FreeRTOS+TCP users only need
to know enough to understand the FreeRTOS+TCP configuration options, and
how to use the standard Berkeley sockets
interface to send and receive data.
A FreeRTOS+TCP networking tutorial
with simple worked examples and an API
reference are provided on this website.
The following links provide a glossary of networking terminology, and
are best read in order:
