I'm a software engineer and I would really join you guys to enhance the OpenXDK.
I would like to work on LWIP TCP/IP network stack integration and then on a mail API.
Final goal is to be able to develop an email client for Xbox....That's great :)
Please answer me as quickly as possible. I'd like to begin working ASAP.
As I mentioned in a private email, before we implement LWIP (or any other stack), we need to get some low-level hardware drivers (like forcedeth). If you can help in this regard, please give me a shout.
Are you sure that you need a network device driver to use LWIP ?
Does the XBox load a network module during boot ? (microsoft dashboard or alternative one)
==> If yes, it's ok and should be recognize as a standard network interface for lwIP.
Last point, did you think about SDL_Net ?
This should be quite the same than lwIP but could avoid using many different low level API...Just a thought
You might want to have a quick read of the following:
The net result is that the only functionality that the XBOX gives us is in the functions described at:
There is no standard network interface (not that I know of, at least). If we want to send data into/out of the xbox, we need to write code that manipulates the nvidia nforce chip registers (on a normal OS, this would be called a device driver, but XBOX doesn't have the notion of device drivers).
SDL_Net is merely another layer built on top of existing Berkeley sockets (or Windows sockapi). Before we can use SDL_Net, we need the low level stuff first.
