Power up with no IP address

0 votes
Can I initialize the TCP stack with no IP address? Basically, set the IP to 0.0.0.0

Will this work, and allow me to broadcast messages out of the Digi and also receive broadcast messages?

Tim,

The interface must have a valid, non-zero address, hence why
auto-ip is supported.

Broadcasting once the interface has a valid address should pose no problem.

so an Auto-ip assigned IP address, that doesn't match the subnet that you are currently using, will still work?
