CAN-Ethernet Bridge Ethernet Interface

This document describes the Ethernet interface to the Prohelion CAN-Ethernet bridge device. This information is primarily aimed at advanced users who wish to communicate with the bridge using custom or 3rd party software.

The bridge supports bi-directional CAN-Ethernet bridging using both UDP and TCP protocols. UDP is the default protocol, and should be used for normal broadcast CAN packets. TCP mode should be used when a reliable point-to-point connection is required between the bridge and a single network device, for example when exchanging a stream of data via the CAN-Ethernet network. The bridge can only support a single TCP connection at any time.
