Embedded Ethernet and TCP/IPv4 application Development using the Micrium TCP/IP Protocol Stack — A 5 day course
This is a 5 days hands on course that will cover network configuration and troubleshooting (using e.g. the Wireshark protocol analyser), TCP/IP protocol stack installation as well as sockets programming and TCP/UDP application level programming.
This is an instructor led course with labs, with a split of about 60% teaching and 40% labs.
On completion of the course attendees will understand how to integrate the Micrium TCP/IP protocol stack library into their applications.
Delegates will also understand the main techniques for configuring and troubleshooting TCP/IP networks in general and networks containing embedded systems in particular.
Delegates will also be able to develop sockets based client - server applications (both TCP and UDP) and be able to develop applications that make use of protocols such as HTTP, FTP, SMTP and SNMP.
This course is aimed at experienced C programmers who are relatively new to networking and network programming.
Basic understanding of computer networking and the internet.
