Hello,

we are trying to make FTP connection to the server in order to download img for ota.

can someone please help / explain / point me into the right direction what all do we need to do in between

wiced_init( );

wiced_network_up( WICED_STA_INTERFACE, WICED_USE_EXTERNAL_DHCP_SERVER, NULL );

and

nx_ftp_client_create(&ftp_client, "FTP Client", &IP_HANDLE(WICED_STA_INTERFACE), 2000, &wiced_packet_pools[1]);

nx_ftp_client_connect(&ftp_client, FTP_SERVER_ADDRESS, "user", "pass", 10000);

in order to establish the connection with FTP server.

Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,
Martin

WiConnect, the serial API from ACKme Networks that sits on top of WICED supports OTA natively, have you considered just using WiConnect to simplify your design?

The WiConnect API can be found here: http://wiconnect.ack.me

It may be a quicker time to market for you

Hello,

Can someone please lets me know if we can use nx_ftp_ functions with existing "wiced_init" and "wiced_network_up" functions?

no matter what I try "nx_ftp_client_connect" always returns NX_NO_PACKET

Regards,

Martin

Hi,

nx_ftp, requires a file system, which WICED doesn't support. We have recently been working on implementing TFTP protocol, which is (as the name implies) doing file transfers as well (a trivial one though). it is still a preliminary version, but I can attach it here, if any one is interested.

Hi,

Please find the attached zip file for adding TFTP support, please note this is a preliminary version, it hasn't gone through our SVT (System verification tests) yet. I'd appreciate feedbacks. Also please give a good attention to firewall limitations posed by windows.

Have a look at the snip application for the API and usage.
