Access point

group LWESP_AP

Access point.

Functions to manage access point (AP) on ESP device.

In order to be able to use AP feature, LWESP_CFG_MODE_ACCESS_POINT must be enabled.

Functions

Get IP of access point.

Parameters
  • ip[out] Pointer to variable to write IP address

  • gw[out] Pointer to variable to write gateway address

  • nm[out] Pointer to variable to write netmask address

  • evt_fn[in] Callback function called when command has finished. Set to NULL when not used

  • evt_arg[in] Custom argument for event callback function

  • blocking[in] Status whether command should be blocking or not

Returns

lwespOK on success, member of lwespr_t enumeration otherwise
