Last Updated:03/02/2018


Where can I find the references to module guide resources for the Express Logic NetX™ BSD Support module?


Information on the module guide itself and the associated resources and known issues are available here.


The BSD Socket API Compliancy Wrapper (NetX™ BSD) supports a subset of the basic BSD Socket API calls (with some limitations) using NetX™ services.

Note: The NetX Duo BSD is almost identical to NetX BSD in for BSD application development. When the NetX BSD is referenced in this document, the same applies to the NetX Duo BSD unless otherwise noted.

The module supports the following features:

  • The NetX BSD Support module is compliant with BSD 4.3.
  • Provides high-level APIs to:
    • Create and delete sockets
    • Set socket options
    • Request TCP connections and listen for connection requests
    • Send and receive packets
    • Raw packet support**
    • PPP over Ethernet support**

** NetX Duo BSD only
