Hi,

good! Is there any documentation how to set gateway PI/2245 based to connect to this cloud? I have already went through provided documents and haven’t found any clue … locally on gateway loraserver works like charm :slight_smile: , but how to correctly connect to the cloud and how to resolve issues if something goes wrong?

Regards

Hi, @Oskariot

You can have a look at my document for RAK2245 Pi HAT:
https://www.rakwireless.com/en/download/LoRa/RAK2245-Pi-HAT

In this document, section 8.2 is about “An independent LoRaServer”. The cloud LoRaServer is surely an independent LoRaServer too. :slight_smile:

Hi @Fomi

thank you for quick answer (as usual :wink::+1:). I have already red this document and mentioned section 8.2. I’m asking not for setting independent loraserver, there is a lot of description in your documentation, but what is not clear for me to what to set on gateway side PI/2245 to connect to independent loraserver (yours, mine or whoever else). Maybe I’m missing something but so far it is not clear:

  1. can I use originally installed GW SW on PI/RAK2245 with loraserver, just somehow tweak it (i.e. set IP address of independent server instead of 127.0.0.1 mentioned in documentation)
  2. should I use different PI/RAK2245 image and install GW/bridge or any other required SW.
  3. anything else :slight_smile:

Hi, @Oskariot

You are right, if you want to connect your RAK2245 RPi Gateway with a loraserver (No matter built-in or independent. No matter yours, mine or whoever else:wink:), you just need to configure your RAK2245 RPi Gateway according to the section 6.2.2 of my document.

The difference of them is only one point: IP address!
For example, 127.0.0.1 indicates the built-in loraserver, and 209.250.251.9 indicates my cloud EU868 loraserver, and maybe xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx indicates your or other’s loraserver.
Just fill with the IP address of the loraserver you want to connect with, and that’s all about how to configure RAK2245 RPi Gateway. :slight_smile:

Ok, it is clear now. :+1:

Hi All;

Do you have AS923 frequency for LoRaServer?

Thank you,
Best regards.

Hi @emporejrz

We’re setting up a new loraserver which works in AS923 ASAP.
Please wait.

BTW, you can supply your information firstly as same as other friends above, in format as follow:
“your name” + “your email” + “the frequency you want to use” + “how long you want to hold this account” + “your RAK LoRa product picture”.
