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.
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...
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.
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?
