2 new importants requirements in AT firmware

Postby phil31 » Thu Nov 13, 2014 9:07 pm

Hello

I would like to request some new and important features in the AT firmware :

- possibility to set up an STATIC IP (and all required others parameters, like gateway .. ).
the DHCP solution is not possible in every situation. some customer don't provide a DHCP server.

- an possibility to enable/disable an hardware handshake feature : RTS/CTS can be mapped on GPIO0/GPIO2 (which are almost available on all modules)
this is really important for some applications which can't parse quickly all data lines, from the ESP8266 chip. without such solution, I lose many message from the chip.

thanks, regards

Hi Espressif team,

please, do you plan to add hardware Handshake feature soon, in the official AT commands firmware ?
using GPIO 13 & 15 as RTS / CTS pins ?

thanks
Phil

Hi,

please may i expect an answer ?
Is it that I'm the only one who need this feature?
i don't expect so !?? all HOST cpu don't have plenty of SRAM to manage a big buffer (by example to store the full HTML header when a socket is open) before parse all the lines !
so without hardware handshake, we can't use this famous chip to play a web server role...

thanks, regards

well, my question seem really complex :shock:
Espressif team, do you plan to enable hardware handshake protocol on the official AT firmware ?

thanks

Dear Sir,

The current SDK supports hardware flow control by default. Please make a try.

Only MTCK(GPIO13) can be reused as UART0 CTS and MTDO(GPIO15) can be reused as UART0 RTS. CTS/RTS can not be swapped to GPIO0/GPIO2.

Please be noted.

Thanks.

Following up on the first part of the original question; I too would like to be able to disable the DHCP client on the STATION interface and supply a static IP address. It doesn't look like this information gets saved anywhere because when I call wifi_station_dhcpc_stop(), when I restart the DHCP client is back in place.

It would be great if wifi_station_dhcpc_stop() was made persistent and that the ip_info struct was also stored in persistent memory so that it is possible to set up a static IP address

What do the Espressif folks think about this? Am I understanding things correctly?

Cheers,
Ben
