I have done wpan_serial app and it was working with RPL nodes (now RPL
support was removed from Zephyr as we have no maintainer for it).
I saw that RPL support has been removed, but from what I understand,
6lowpan IPv6 prefix propagation should still be working. Without that.
all I can do is get the nodes to ping each other's link-local address.
if they have pre-set IPV6 configuration (own IP, server IP etc.), then
they are still able to send and receive TCP/UDP packets. At this
point, I just want to be able to get an IPV6 prefix from my 'gateway',
which is either native-border-router from contiki-ng, or from 6lbr.
That way I can at least form a star network without any mesh routing.
Let me know if you have any ideas on what I might be missing.
wpan_serial just implements 802.15.4 "serial-radio", it does not know
anything beyond that. I think you need to check contiki border
router or 6lbr for that. wpan_serial might not support all
"serial-radio" commands, but they can be easily added.
