2011-01-11 09:49:35 How to get ip address
Emil Bart (POLAND)
I have two questions:
1. Is there another way to retrieve ip address of proper interface in user space (from application) than the following:
ioctl (sock, SIOCGIFADDR, &ifred);
Maybe is there a file in uCLinux where there are stored ip addresses of all interfaces ? Unfortunatelly I couldn't find it.
2. How can I check in c application if network interface exists and is active (have assigned ip address) in uCLinux.
Thanks for any help

use SIOCGIFCONF to get all interfaces, and SIOCGIFADDR to get the addresses assigned to an interface
