This is the Contiki-NG border router. It supports two main modes of operation: embedded and native. In both cases, the border router runs a simple Web server that exposes a list of currently connected nodes via HTTP.

See the RPL border router tutorial

Embedded border router

The embedded border router runs on a node. It is connected to the host via SLIP. The host simply runs a tun gateway (tunslip6). To use, program a node, and then start tunslip6 on the host via the make command connect-router. See embedded/README.md for more.

Native border router

The native border router runs directly at the host. The node simply runs a SLIP-radio interface (examples/slip-radio). The host, on the other hand, runs a full 6LoWPAN stack. See native/README.md for more.

RPL node

As RPL node, you may use any Contiki-NG example with RPL enabled, but which does not start its own DAG (as this is the responsibility of the border router). For instance examples/hello-world or examples-coap are great starting points. This is not intended to run with examples/rpl-udp however, as this examples builds its own stand-alone, border-router-free RPL network.
