PF for eCos

samwun
Hi,

Since eCos has its TCP/IP stack ported ported over from FreeBSD, does it
support Packet Filter firewall (PF)?

Thanks
Sam

You could possibly get this to work, but IIRC the framework
relies quite a lot on user level application (in the BSD world).
These would have to be provided in some fashion as well.

That said, none of that code has ever been exercised on eCos.
