|Een LoRa gateway voor the-things-network|
|Contact||bertrik, User:Dave_o, Maxell|
This page is about a LoRa gateway at RevSpace configured for the-things-network (TTN), kindly provided by Dave_O.
It's a Kerlink, some essentials properties:
- LoRaWAN EUI: 0000024B080606AC
- eth0 MAC address: 02:4B:08:06:06:AC
- Last known IPv4 in the RevSpace LAN: 10.42.45.15
The gateway itself is physically mounted in the ceiling of a disused lavatory on the second floor (with a broken light and a sign that says "Beware of the Leopard"). It's connected to our discone antenna.
Configuration files for TTN in general can be found here:
- in /mnt/fsuser-1/thethingsnetwork
The gateway is configured for NTP in /etc/ntp.conf to use X.nl.pool.ntp.org where X goes from 0 to 3.
The gateway has been configured for "poly"-packet forward, also sending it's data to the gatewaystats.org website where statistics are kept (number of unique nodes, log of all received packets, etc.)
Status and diagnostics
- official TTN gateway status page and search for 0000024B080606AC
- gateway stats page (requires login)
- TTN mapper page
To see what the gateway is communicating with the TTN, run the following on the gateway:
tcpdump -i eth0 -n -vvvX host router.eu.thethings.network
This should show a packet once every 30 seconds with some stats.
You'll also see some JSON packets for each packet received.
