Re: Using BLE IPSP with a Smartphone or Tablet as Host

Hi Häring,


I believe that neither Android nor iOS support IPSP, so this might not be possible at all.

That said I’ve copied a couple of people to this thread who might have more information.

Subject: [Zephyr-devel] Using BLE IPSP with a Smartphone or Tablet as Host


Hello everyone


I would like to wirelessly connect some sensor nodes with IPv6 to a smartphone or tablet. I plan to use 6LoWPAN over BLE with the help of IPSP. I have already successfully put the IPSP sample project into operation and tested it. This is basically what I tried to accomplish. Now I want to replace the Linux host with a smartphone or tablet. For this procedure, I did some research on the internet and found this post in the Nordic Forum:


According to this thread, it is not possible to do this with an iOS or Android mobile device. However, this post is already older than 1 year. Nevertheless, I cannot find any further information on this topic.


Has anyone tried or implemented anything similar before? Does anyone have more information on this?
