TCP/UDP

Here are links of vendors specific documentation for working with the TCP/UDP stack:

ATCommander implements prodedures to execute TCP and UDP communication using every vendor specific AT commands set. The following tab/UI is available for it:


Tutorial for SIMCom:

Given below is a list of AT commands that you must fire in the exact given sequence to connect to a webserver using TCP over GPRS.

The symbol => indicates the command you need to enter, <= indicates the response received from the SIM900.

Text within /** **/ are comments for further explanation. The response may contains additional information than what is shown here. I have listed down only the important part of the response that you need to be aware of.

/** First test if everything is okay **/

=> AT
<= AT /** This should come back. SIM900 default is to echo back commands you enter **/
<= OK /** This string should tell you all is well**/

=>AT+CPIN? /**This is to check if SIM is unlocked. This sample assumes unlocked SIMs**/
<= +CPIN: READY /** If your response contains this, then it means SIM is unlocked and ready**/

=>AT+CREG? /**This checks if SIM is registered or not**/
<=+CREG: 0,1 /**This string in the response indicates SIM is registered**/

=>AT+CGATT? /**Check if GPRS is attached or not**/
<=+CGATT: 1 /**A response containing this string indicates GPRS is attached**/

=>AT+CIPSHUT /**Reset the IP session if any**/
<=SHUT OK /**This string in the response represents all IP sessions shutdown.**/

=>AT+CIPSTATUS /**Check if the IP stack is initialized**/
<=STATE: IP INITIAL /**This string in the response indicates IP stack is initialized**/

=>AT+CIPMUX=0 /**To keep things simple, I’m setting up a single connection mode**/
<=OK /**This string indicates single connection mode set successfully at SIM 900**/

=>AT+CSTT= “APN”, “UNAME”, “PWD” /**Start the task, based on the SIM card you are using, you need to know the APN, username and password for your service provider**/
<= OK /**This response indicates task started successfully**/

=> AT+CIICR /**Now bring up the wireless. Please note, the response to this might take some time**/
<=OK /**This text in response string indicates wireless is up**/

=>AT+CIFSR /**Get the local IP address. Some people say that this step is not required, but if I do not issue this, it was not working for my case. So I made this mandatory, no harm.**/
<= xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx /**If previous command is successful, you should see an IP address in the response**/

=>AT+CIPSTART= “TCP” , “www.vishnusharma.com”, “80” /**Start the connection, TCP, domain name, port**/
<= CONNECT OK /**This string in the response indicates TCP connection established**/

=>AT+CIPSEND /**Request initiation of data sending (the request)**/
<= > /**The response should be the string “>” to indicate, type your data to send**/

=> xxxxxx /**Just type anything for now**/
=>#026 /**Now type the sequence #026. This tells the terminal.exe to send the hex code 0x1a (which is Ctrl+Z) to indicate end of data sending**/
<= xxxxxxxxxx /**You should get some response back from the server…it would generally be a complain that the request string was not valid…but that is a different subject…you have established the connection**/

/**To close the connection**/

=>AT+CIPSHUT /**Request shutting down of the current connections**/
<=SHUT OK /**Indicates shutdown successful**/
