FreeRTOS+UDP port to STM32F429

Posted by beaker1969 on January 28, 2015

Hi

I have been working on porting the FreeRTOS+UDP to the stm32f429 and have successfully got it to work with being able to get responses from ping's from a PC. I have had to make a few changes as explained below.

The STM32F429 has the capability to generate the checksums required for the sections in a packet. when the FreeRTOS responds to an ICMP packet it does a quick re-calculation of the ICMP checksum but this causes the STM32F429 auto calculation of the checksum to fail as it MUST be 0000 when it enters the calculation process.

for STM32F4 - see page 1125 of doc - DM00031020 Reference manual.

      Note that: for ICMP-over-IPv4 packets, the checksum field in 

the ICMP packet must always be 0x0000 in both modes, because pseudo-headers are not defined for such packets. If it does not equal 0x0000, an incorrect checksum may be inserted into the packet.

in order to get round this problem i have used the existing setting called 'ipconfigDRIVERINCLUDEDTXIPCHECKSUM' to decide if the ICMP will be calculated in the routine ''prvProcessICMPEchoRequest' located in 'FReeRTOS_IP.c' as shown below.

original

             if( pxICMPHeader->usChecksum >= FreeRTOS_htons( ( ( 

uint16t ) 0xffffU ) - ( ipICMPECHOREQUEST << ( ( uint16t ) 8U ) ) ) ) { pxICMPHeader->usChecksum = ( uint16t ) ( ( ( uint32t ) pxICMPHeader->usChecksum ) + FreeRTOShtons( ipICMPECHOREQUEST << ( ( uint16t ) 8U ) ) + 1U ); } else { pxICMPHeader->usChecksum = ( uint16t ) ( ( ( uint32t ) pxICMPHeader->usChecksum ) + FreeRTOShtons( ipICMPECHOREQUEST << ( ( uint16t ) 8U ) ) ); }

 replaced by


      //added by AW
     #if( ipconfigDRIVER_INCLUDED_TX_IP_CHECKSUM == 0 )
     {
     // for STM32F4 - see page 1125 of doc - DM00031020 Reference 

manual. /* * Note that: for ICMP-over-IPv4 packets, the checksum field in the ICMP packet must always be 0x0000 in both modes, because pseudo-headers are not defined for such packets. If it does not equal 0x0000, an incorrect checksum may be inserted into the packet. */ if( pxICMPHeader->usChecksum >= FreeRTOShtons( ( ( uint16t ) 0xffffU ) - ( ipICMPECHOREQUEST << ( ( uint16t ) 8U ) ) ) ) { pxICMPHeader->usChecksum = ( uint16t ) ( ( ( uint32t ) pxICMPHeader->usChecksum ) + FreeRTOShtons( ipICMPECHOREQUEST << ( ( uint16t ) 8U ) ) + 1U ); } else { pxICMPHeader->usChecksum = ( uint16t ) ( ( ( uint32t ) pxICMPHeader->usChecksum ) + FreeRTOShtons( ipICMPECHOREQUEST << ( ( uint16_t ) 8U ) ) ); }

     }    // added by AW
     #else
     {
         pxICMPHeader->usChecksum = 0x0000;
     }
     #endif

if it hasn't already been added the following needs to be added to the FreeRTOSIPConfig.h

define ipconfigDRIVERINCLUDEDTXIPCHECKSUM 1

this allows all the checksums to be calculated by the hardware.

I will keep you updated on my progress in getting more of it working.

FreeRTOS+UDP port to STM32F429

Thanks for the very useful post - yes please do keep us updated, and once you are happy with the code please post it to the FreeRTOS Interactive site (http://interactive.freertos.org).

We are currently porting FreeRTOS+TCP to the STM32, although with all the other development work we are doing it will probably be a while before it is released.. FreeRTOS+TCP has a few more options for checksum offloading.

Regards.
