the case that I faces with MX870 is TCP communication,
CASE:
- Regarding to VeriFone documents, to initialize Ethernet device for TCP/IP communication in MX there are configuration parameter that I must set before
Either:-
 *DHCP=1
OR
 *IFCONFIG=eth0 XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX netmask XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
 *GATEWAY=XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
 *DNS1=XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
 *DNS2=XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
The case is application canít start at all when I set all of these parameters in config.usr1, and only starts in case of I removed the parameter *GATEWAY while if I removed every TCP operation(Ping, Connection,Ö) fails when i tryong to do it from apllication or from dignostic form.
ACTION:
- I tried to set *GATEWAY parameter at run time using putEnvFile() or putenv(), then I tried to initialize Ethernet device using netUP() but the application hangs<stop with no more user interaction>.
- I tried to set all configuration parameters at runtime but application hangs when I call netUP() to initialize the device with these TCP/IP configurations parameters.
- I removed it and tried to make any operation but they are always fail.
QUESTIONNAIRES:
1- Why this impact on the application when I set this parameter?
2- How can I set all needed parameters and make successful TCP/IP operation?
3- What is missing to make successful Ethernet device initialization?
4- What environment settings that I must check/set to be sure that the application will not hang again?
5- it will be really apprecaited if there is a communication exapmle that i can try?

Did you ever set the commtype=TCPIP?
