Hi all,

For a research project I needed IPv6 support on an LPC43xx board.
I could not find an IPv6 example application anywhere so I have now modified modified the LPCOpen example application dc_freertos_webserver.
This example application, as found on the LPCOpen server, has an old LWIP stack that supports only IPv4.
However, the latest LWIP from the git repository at http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/lwip does have IPv6 support!

I have simply replaced the old LWIP with the latest LWIP and have now a working example with IPv6.
To make this work, I have made changes to the "glue layer" file lpc18xx_43xx_emac.c and to the application itself.
If this is useful for somebody I can make a zip file of the application and email it.

Kind regards,
Klaas.
