I have designed one fairly widely used product based on the older
RCM2200 and the Z-World TCP/IP engine.
The C language implementation is non-standard (non-ANSI) and the design
environment can be a little quirky. That said, for what I was doing,
(modified telnet as a data bearer, plus a minimal page of HTML for
status), the IP engine in its latest release seems to be solid. You
could not call it particularly fast, however.
Z-World support was generally good.
You should consider investing in Dynamic C Premier Edition if you are
doing a serious development.
