Re: [lwip-users] Status of PPP implementation

In the system I'm working on, both client and server are embedded systems, so 
I've no such option. For now, only one server and one client would be connected 
together, but in the near future I expect several clients to connect to the 
same server, using a 485-based network.

So, either one has to go for PPP, or one could implement an ethernet over 
serial driver, sending the ethernet frames to the serial instead of to an 
ethernet chip. I don't know if that could work, though.
