I am using Valkyrie-MT’s awesome mIP managed TCP/IP stack on a FEZ Cerberus with great success! Very solid and easy to work with!
My network knowledge is limited, and what I thought I could do may not be feasible, so I am reaching out to the community here for some help.
I have 2 devices on a particular subnet - one is a Windows 7 PC, the other a cerberus running a mIP based application (so far a simple web server). On the PC I want to run any browser, browse to a asp.net website on the internet, and have the code-behind of a page on that site broadcast a packet and receive it on the cerberus, which again is running an application built around Valkyrie-MT’s mIP framework.
If this is even possible, what kind of socket would I need to set up on the website’s code behind, and more importantly what would the corresponding approach be on the mIP side? I tried udp, and can see the packet’s go out but even with a breakpoint on the nic_onFrameArrived event, I never see this udp packet arrive. So maybe I need to go down a layer (layer3!), but without a socket to bind to on the mIP application, how can this be done?
I know I lack some expertise on networking but I am getting there, I just need some guidance and would sincerely appreciate getting pointed in the right direction
Thanks in advance for any help you fellows can offer!
