Lower Webduino server overhead with a favicon.ico

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

Martin Lormes recently acquired an Arduino and Ethernet shield. Once he got the setup running on the web using the Webduino Arduino web server library, he checked the traffic using Wireshark and noticed that if the embedded server didn't offer up a favicon.ico file when initially requested the browser would...

While most of us are familiar with packet capturing/sniffing programs such as Wireshark, it's not always the most convenient or appropriate tool to use in every network monitoring situation. Henry Van Styn has written an excellent how-to tutorial on the uses of the Linux command line utility TCPDUMP, and why...

Web platform: uIP TCP/IP stack with SD card

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

The uIP TCP/IP stack for the web platform now lists and reads files from an SD card. You can now read files and list directories from the SD card. There's also a 'sddump' command that will dump sectors from the sd card in the same way that  memdump dumps memory,...

Web platform: uIP TCP/IP stack with multitasking

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

There’s some new features in  Bonybrown's  uIP TCP/IP stack project for the web platform. Some notable changes are: The code runs 3 "tasks" that it multitasks between. One for the IP stack, one for the serial port (debugging help) and another for a handler for telnet (port 23). The telnet...

Web platform: uIP TCP/IP stack with interrupts, DMA

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Here's another update on the uIP TCP/IP stack port for the web platform. Bonybrown got the uIP stack to work with interrupts from the ENC28J60, and used DMA to transfer buffers to PIC memory. Performance wise - no real difference I can see from the ping times; theoretically, the biggest...

Web platform: uIP TCP/IP stack working

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

A few months ago we started a port of the uIP TCP/IP stack for the dsPIC33-based web platform. Bonybrown picked up the source and got it working. The current version can accept 10 simultaneous telnet connections, and has ping times of 0.68ms: Next steps I'd like to try are to...
