I am a hardware type trying to program a TCP server using a MC9S12NE64. The only real documentation I can find is comments in the code so this is a frustrating task.

I have run the tcp_server_demo code, can connect and talk to the board. I have put the line lines
if (BUTTON_IS_PRESSED)
tcps_demo_send();


in the main loop to see how fast it can transmit but it seems it only sends a packet at the rate of ~ 5Hz.

The code says it must wait until the previous packet is sent before it can send another but 5 Hz seems a bit slow. Any suggestions?


The program tcp_server_demo uses the function RECEIVE_NETWORK_BUF to receive data. How come it uses tcp_send instead of SEND_NETWORK_BUF to send it?

Thanks in advance for any help

I haven't used it myself but will try to contact someone who has, also have you tried this free port of the uIP TCP/IP stack to the NE64 processor. http://www.ericengler.com/EmbeddedGNU.aspx
