Hello, Is it possible to open a raw socket on the device instead of TCP or UDP? I can't seem to find information about this in the manual. I would like to receive/send packets on MAC address level. If not, would this be possible in the near feature? Cheers, Gerard

Yes, it is possible to open a raw socket on the device. You can refer to ath_raw_rx function for sample usage. The qcom_socket API has to be  opened with socket type=SOCK_RAW_TYPE.

Thanks for the fast reply. That is what I am looking for. Maybe something that could be included in the manual. It now only says SOCK_DGRAM or SOCK_STREAM is possible at qcom_socket. Cheers, Gerard

Is it possible to open an IPv6 raw socket? I tried several protocols as argument for qcom_socket(AF_INET6, SOCK_RAW_TYPE, protocol), but return code was always -1. Thanks, Adrian

All SOCK_RAW_TYPE sockets demonstrated in the host SDK belong to family ATH_AF_INET, hence my initial question concerning IPv6.
