   Thanks Mr Chris for your guidance.  I referred to the link you have
specified.  Before going into the details of Networking with RTEMS, I
wish to have a successful experiment.  I wish to write a client server
program using TCP sockets and RTEMS' POSIX API.  I do not want to go
into details of networking devices, driver development etc.  I wish to
restrict my endeavours to writing the client server program.  I want
to run my application as a task in RTEMS by providing appropriate
entries to init task table.  Is it possible?  How to assign the IP
address for RTEMS running on x86 PC?  How to define the gateway,
subnet masks etc.  Please guide me further.
