Are any IP compression techniques supported?
Does anyone know if QNX 6.3 networking supports any of the IP compression techniques? Specifically I'm interested in
ROHC or RTP (RFC2508) protocol stack or IP header compression (RFC 2507)?
I've been asked to study the possibility of sending UDP data over VSAT (low bandwidth satellite) to remote customers and
ROHC or RTP would seem to be the ideal way to reduce bandwith for sending ethernet traffic.
We also have a potential customer asking us about using our product over low bandwidth wireless ethernet as well.
I did a quick google search and another in the helpviewer but didn't see anything that looked like there might be
support for it.
Would QNet help in this regard in any way?
If neither ROHC or RTP is supported would it be possible to find source code for those techniques, port it to QNX and
interface it to io-net?
