lwIP - A Lightweight TCP/IP stack

lwIP is a small independent implementation of the TCP/IP protocol suite that 
has been developed by Adam Dunkels at the Computer and Networks Architectures 
lab at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science as part of the Connected 

The focus of the lwIP TCP/IP implementation is to reduce the RAM usage while 
still having a full scale TCP. This makes lwIP suitable for use in embedded 
systems with tenths of kilobytes of free RAM and room for around 40 kilobytes 
of code ROM.

lwIP features: 

- IP (Internet Protocol) including packet forwarding over multiple network 
- ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) for network maintenance and 
- UDP (User Datagram Protocol) including experimental UDP-lite extensions 
- TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) with congestion control, RTT estimation 
and fast recovery/fast retransmit 
- Specialized no-copy API for enhanced performance 
- Optional Berkeley socket API 

lwIP is freely available (under the modified BSD license) in
C source code format and can be downloaded here:
