    When I was about to implement a node, the chance I had to get access to a running CANbus network, failed.

    In spite I saw this not reccomended, what could be the simplest implementation (two nodes) to start experimenting?

    a) Basically, could anyone tell me what should be the simplest settings to have more chances to get them up and running. The most basic the better, I think.

    b) I presume that handling errors is capital here. Since I expect lot of them, can you suggest what is the best way to handle them? I fear to find the info, a bit on the overwhelming side.

    I will use the 18F4585, a (TI or Microchip) transceiver,. LCD display, buttons and LEds.
