LPC23xx, Red Suite 5, debugger issue

Hi everyone, 


I am using Red Suite 5 IDE for developing code for NXP LPC23xx micro which is an ARM7 micro. I am trying to flash and debug the code using NXP Link 2 debug adaptor but it doesn’t seem to be working at all. The same debug adopter works well for NXP LPC17xx micro which is a cortex M3 on another board. 

I have been looking around and I see things like this adaptor (link 2) won’t work for none cortex M micro or at least it is not compatible with ARM7 architecture and I have to use Red Probe+ adaptor. 

Does anybody know what I should do?


my other question is about Red Suite 5. Does this IDE run a server by the name red link an equivalent to GDB server to establish the connection to the target board or the debug adaptor? 


My code seems to be compiling in NXPxpresso as well. If I use this IDE, can I use nxp Link 2 to program and flash the NXP LPC23xx ARM7 micro? If not, what probe should I use? 


Many thanks,
