XORP on an embedded system?

Discussion in 'Linux Networking' started by Washington Ratso, Aug 3, 2011.

  1. I have been assigned to put XORP on a custom board, and I came across
    the posting below which says, "XORP's original design didn't consider
    the possibility of an embedded deployment."

    Being new to XORP, is it intended for use on an embedded system?

    I have approximately 20 MB available. Is it be possible for me to put
    XORP on my board? If not, any recommendations for an embedded, open
    source routing stack?

    I'm trying to embed the open source XORP routing stack in 85xx based
    embedded system. XORP's original design didn't consider the
    possibility of an embedded deployment, so just getting it all to fit
    within the 32MB flash of our target has been a challenge all by
    itself.
