Hello, I’m following this tutorial https://docs.loraserver.io/lora-gateway-bridge/install/gateway/multitech/ in order to get Lora Gateway Bridge running on my Gateway. I’ve installed both lora-packet-forwarder and lora-gateway-bridge. When I start lora-packet-forwarder everything seems to be ok. But if I run “ps -A” command lora packet forwarder is not running. When I use “/etc/init.d/lora-packet-forwarder-ap2 restart” command when it try to stop the process, it says that it isn’t running. I’ve followed all tutorial`s steps. Can anybody tell me what is going on?
Could you try the following?
$ cd /var/config/lora-packet-forwarder-ap2/
(only do this after the first
/etc/init.d/lora-packet-forwarder-ap2 start as it creates a symlink for the spi interface)
I did it all againt. I mean, I flash-upgraded my conduit, and downloaded and installed lora-packet-forwarder. After that I ran “/etc/init.d/lora-packet-forwarder-ap2 start” command and did what you suggest. This returned
That is odd, could you remove the
global_conf.json and run the
/etc/init.d/lora-packet-forwarder-ap2 command again and post the output? It is supposed to create the
global_conf.json and also set the gateway id and spi interface: https://github.com/brocaar/loraserver-yocto/blob/master/layers/meta-semtech/recipes-lora/lora-packet-forwarder/lora-packet-forwarder/mtcdt/lora-packet-forwarder-ap2.init#L39
I got this . The /opt/lora-packet-forwarder/config directory seems to be ok. It has the global_conf.json.MTAC… files
Please note that the install instructions are for the
MTAC-LORA-H mCard (SPI), you have the
MTAC-LORA mCard (FTDI). Support for FTDI concentrator boards was dropped late 2015 and is not supported by this packet-forwarder version. Therefore you have to follow the Multitech instructions to setup the legacy FTDI packet-forwarder that they provide.
You can still use the lora-gateway-bridge
.ipk package, that one should still work
