We can only provide limited support for the VxWorks 5x/6x and 7 driver, as we do not have a working VxWorks development environment.
Nevertheless, driver code has been tested on latest VxWorks versions 6.7 and 6.9 successfully.

Due to infrequent update cycles, the drivers software core cifX/netX Toolkit (NXDRV-TKIT) may get outdated or will get fixes solving basic problems.
Please also verify the actual version of the cifX/net Toolkit when encountering problems with the VxWorks driver, maybe a toolkit update will solve it.
