TCP/IP Lean second edition

TCP/IP Lean concept.
New for the second edition
Five new chapters and one appendix have been added, broadening the
scope of this book to include microcontroller Ethernet interfacing, enhanced
serial communications, auto-configuration, TCP and UDP client/server operation.
The new chapters are:
NEW Chapter 12 - ChipWeb - miniature Ethernet Web server
The PICmicro Web server of chapters 9-11 used a serial (SLIP)
link; in this chapter an Ethernet controller (the Realtek RTL8019AS) is used to
provide Ethernet connectivity. The resulting Ethernet Web server software is
fully compatible with the Microchip PICDEM.net demonstration board, and
uses an HTML frameset with dynamic updates to display and control the I/O
NEW Chapter 13 - Point-to-Point Protocol: PPP
To enhance the original PICmicro SLIP serial communications, an
outline PPP implementation is presented, with dial-up, authentication and
address negotiation capability.
NEW Chapter 14 - UDP clients, servers and fast data
In a major departure from the miniature Web servers, this
chapter looks at the theory and practice of client/server programming, using
UDP for low-level data transmission. Practical examples for the Microchip
PICDEM.net kit include:
- Time client, which displays the current time it has fetched
over the network
- High-speed server, which provides uncompressed video images
at up to 2 Mbit/s
- Windows and Linux interface framework
NEW Chapter 15 - Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol: DHCP
Self-configuring systems are useful in many applications; this
chapter introduces DHCP, discusses its strengths and weaknesses, and presents a
full implementation for the PICmicro®.
NEW Chapter 16 - TCP clients, SMTP and POP3 email
Completing the discussion of microcontroller client/server
programming, this chapter gives working examples of TCP email clients:
- SMTP client, which sends an email on contact closure.
- POP3 client, which fetches emails from a server, displaying
the source address and subject line.
NEW Appendix D - PICmicro-specific issues
The new software supports both the CCS and Hitech 'C' compilers
on the Microchip PIC16xxx and PIC18xxx microcontrollers. This appendix looks at
the hardware and software issues involved.
As with the first edition, full 'C' source code for all the PC
and PICmicro applications is provided on the CD-ROM.
ENHANCED Function and structure indexes
All 'C' language functions and structures are indexed.
