That's why it fails.  RedBoot is taking all the packets which you want the
application to get.

RedBoot and your application must have different IP addresses - they are
distinct network presences.

You must either
a) configure RedBoot (using fconfig) to have a static IP address and use
BOOTP or DHCP to bring up you application
b) use BOOTP for RedBoot and bring up your application some other way -
such as static IP address.
