Were these chunks conformance tests or interoperability tests?

Please excuse me, but I'm a bit of a newbie at this. :)
Can you please explain the router thread a bit?

Our target is an arm based board with RedBoot, but I've heard that routers 
can't be run along with RedBoot.  Also, most of the preliminary tests we 
have done on our setup is just by compiling test sources with the libraries 
built from eCos, uploading it to the target, and executing it with go.  This 
is why I thought that the one would have to port the TAHI interoperability 
test sources to eCos in order to execute them.  For conformance, I'm still a 
bit at a loss on how to get the target to respond.

Thank you very much! :)
