Hi all,


My project involves manually setting the IP for the device. Lets say I have 2 devices with identical IP. When I power up both system, I should be able to see that one can bind with the static IP and the other should throw an error. However on my module below, it is not. Is there any setting I need to do to perform these?


error = RTCS_create();

if ((ipcfg_init_device(BSP_DEFAULT_ENET_DEVICE, enet_address)) != IPCFG_OK) //my enet_address is unique in every device


if ((ipcfg_bind_staticip(BSP_DEFAULT_ENET_DEVICE, &ipDataGlobal)) != IPCFG_OK)// i set 2 devices with same IP



Isn't it the bind static IP function should throw an error? Correct me if I am wrong, when I power up both devices, there will be a race condition and whichever comes first binds the IP. Is it a correct assumption?


I am debugging and it is not going into errorNet function.
