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.
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
tunslip6 on the host via the make command
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.
native/README.md for more.
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).
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.
