We trying to switch from homemade protocol to QNET and we need some information about this protocol.
So some questions:
1. Is io-pkt's version of QNET compatible with io-net's implementation of this protocol? It looks like YES.
2. For remote debugging of communication between devices/nodes we probably (I would say "more likely") will create own
network sniffer (on computer/PC) with ability to parse communication between our devices. So we need to know packet
structure of L3, L4 of QNET protocol to make this. Is it available any documentation about QNET anatomy?
I found no header with QNET structure definitions. May be I miss them somehow... :-)
Can you point to good source of information about QNET?
3. Using simple sniffing of Ethernet I found that data is send over the line in open form is it a way to make safe
communication (by encryption for example) between our devices/nodes without changing of message passing principals we
So, ideally encryption/decryption should happens inside of QNET stack transparently for IPC. In io-net it can be done by
implementing specific filter module but is it possible in io-pkt?
