Hey all, I could really use some help.
For the last few days I have been trying to connect my Raspberry PI 3 (RAK 831) based gateway to the application server and network server that are running on my latop using the provided docker images. (I use the images with all their default configuration files). The Raspberry Pi is connected to my laptop through an ethernet cable (this is also where it gets its internet connection from).
Basically, my application and network server seem to be running fine on my laptop using docker, and the mosquitto broker should be running on 127.0.0.1:1883. I ran
netstat -an as recommended on another forum I was reading to confirm this (image 1 below)
The packet forwarder part of the gateway OS also seems to be working as I am receiving packets from a nearby sensor which are being logged and published (image 2 below)
The problem however arises in connecting the chirpstack-gateway-bridge to the MQTT broker, in the configuration file I thought I had to put in: 127.0.0.1:1883, but this does not seem to work. I figured this is probably due to the broker running on my laptop while the bridge runs on the Raspberry PI, so I tried pointing it to: 192.168.99.100:1883 (the port the Mosquitto Docker container is running on), but this gives a time out error (image 3)
edit: I tested connecting the gateway-bridge to tcp://https://test.mosquitto.org:1883 and this seemed to work just fine.
I have been stuck at this point for a while now and any help would be highly appreciated, thanks for your time.
