Desigining DHCP server, need ARP


#1

Hi guys,

I have developed a custom DHCP server using FEZ Rhino and WIZ811MJ (W5100). I want to do an ARP to make sure that no one is already using the IP address. Can I do this with GHI’s library? I am already using HTTP, TCP, and UDP with this solution successfully. I am looking for ARP or RAW sockets support with the W5100.

Thanks in advance.

Quickly looking at the datasheet for the W5100 I see references to raw IP and raw MAC functionality.

The GHI library does not expose this functionality. You would have to write your own drivers.


#3

You can request the library sources from GHI directly if this is a commercial application.

Gus,

The DHCP server is currently a prototype of a potential commercial application to replace an existing Windows Service and thus replacing a PC. Depends on feasability of the project, and reception by my client.

Consider this a request for the source. Can you email me the licensing terms? Thanks.
