Sorry, saw your other post with the correct syntax too late.

I was wrong there as well. If you compile your POSIX application under
Xenomai 3, the linker wrapper script sticks __wrap_ in front of
standard POSIX symbols (e.g. socket() -> __wrap_socket()).

Assuming you have a compiled & installed xenomai3, a POSIX
application, such as a UDP server [1], can then be compiled with:

`${STAGING_DIR}/usr/xenomai/bin/xeno-config --cc --posix --cflags
--ldflags` -o server server.c

After configuring & bringing up rteth0 with an IP address I can run
this UDP server on my ARM i.MX6 board (wandboard):

root at arm:/home/debian# env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/xenomai/lib/ ./server
Waiting for data...Received packet from
Data: huhu

I also see UDP packets going back and forth between the UDP server and
client with e.g. wireshark.
