[Answered] What is the purpose of the "tcpip_adapter" component ...

Postby kolban » Tue Sep 27, 2016 6:43 pm

Within the ESP-IDF there is an interesting component called "tcpip_adapter". I haven't found any documentation on it.

https://github.com/espressif/esp-idf/tr ... ip_adapter

Does anyone know any more about it? What is its purpose, status, usage pattern, stability etc?

Not sure, I think this has been introduced by our LWIP developers. I seem to remember this is the start of a compatibility layer allowing different TCP/IP stacks to be plugged in to esp-idf.

It's the glue that helps drive the DHCP client & server in response to WiFi events.
