I found this driver for the TiM551

It worked really well, but I want to take advantage of the TiM551's IP67 rating. This means I can't use the usb on the side. I'm new to writing drivers for devices and not particularly knowledgeable on networking. Is there a guide out there for me to follow? I've been studying up on the LMS1xx driver, but I don't know if its enough to help me write it.

I would imagine the first step is to use wireshark to understand how the message is formatted.

Learning how to write drivers would be really helpful, I wouldn't want to be limited from just whats currently available.

Thank you!

The author of the driver informed me TCP is already supported with the current driver. It was just updated on the documentation and works wonderfully!
