IP Forwarding

By default, IP Forwarding is not enabled in the Treck stack. To enable IP Forwarding, the user must turn on the IP forwarding option after the tfStartTreck() call:

errorCode = tfSetTreckOptions(TM_OPTION_IP_FORWARDING, 1UL);

In addition, each device that the user wants to forward packets from and to, should be configured with the TM_DEV_IP_FORW_ENB bit set in the tfOpenInterface() flag parameter. See the tfOpenInterface() description for a list of the valid parameters.

IP Fragmentation

By default, if the TM_IP_FRAGMENT macro is defined in <trsystem.h>, then IP Fragmentation is turned on in the Treck stack. To disable IP Fragmentation, the user must turn off the IP Fragmentation option after the tfStartTreck() call as follows:

errorCode = tfSetTreckOptions(TM_OPTION_IP_FRAGMENT, 0UL);

Removing IP Fragmentation and IP Reassembly Code

To save code space, the user can optionally not compile the IP fragmentation and IP reassembly code in the Treck stack.

Warning Warning: In this case, no IP fragmentation or IP reassembly will ever take place in the Treck stack.

To do that, delete the following macro from <trsystem.h>:
