Mpower firmware not working no change

I have multitech gateway ip67, MTCDTIP model. origannaly the device come with mpower firmware, then I flash it to mlinux 5.2.7 . I am trying to flash mpower firmware on it but it does not change. The gateway remain on the mlinux 5.2.7 version firmware.

how I did it :

1- I downloaded the compressed file of mpower firmware located on this URL

firmware: MTCDT 5.2.1 (signed firmware) with Release Notes

I transfer the file name as :MTCDT_5.2.1_upgrade-signed.bin from my computer to the gateway then i copy it to the directory /var/volatile/flash-upgrade.

sudo touch /var/volatile/do_flash_upgrade
sudo reboot

where is the problem? why the firmware does not change? please, help .


I think it would be better to ask this in the Multitech support channels :slight_smile:

Thanks brocaar . .

please, I have question about chirpstack configuration:

I need to receive data from sensor node to chirpstack application server. I installed the packet forwarder and chirpstack-gateway-bridge on multitech following the instruction in this url:

Therefore, I installed chirpstack-gateway-bridge and chirpstack-network-server and chirpstack-application-server on my laptop following the instructions on this urls respectively.:

However, I can not see my gateway online on the application server, also I do not see my sending data on the chirpstack-network-server although I verified the log file an found no error

so where is the problem in this case?

Best Regards

Choose one of them, not both, and configure bridge regarding your choice.

Thanks a lot for response eugenev …

The problem that when I do not install the gateway bridge on gateway, and verify the ping (chirpstack gateway bridge, I can not see it receiving data from packet forwarder ( tested by ping) . on another side, when chirpstack installed on gateway, and verify receiving data, it seems work.

and based on what you comment " Choose one of them, not both, and configure bridge regarding your choice" . It seems a configuration problem, so what it the key configuration part that responsible on such things. the key configuration among all these component:

frome packet forwarder --> chirpstack-gateway-bridge --> chirpstack-network server --> chirpstack-application-server .

  1. The packet forwarder is installed on the gateway itself.
  2. suppose that chirpstack-gateway-bridge not on the gateway itself but on the laptop.
    thus, what is the key configure 1 with 2.
  3. cirpstack-network-server on the laptop.
    thus, what is the key configure 2 with 3
  4. chirpstack-application-server on the laptop.
    thus, what is the key configure 3 and 4.

The gateway I use is multitech, and it is accessed to the internet by dhcp, and have an ip-address from the router 192.168. . .

pls help , I highly appraciate…

@IOTchirp lets not mix different questions in a single topic to keep the forum organized :slight_smile: I don’t think the above question is related to the Mpower firmware installation.

you are right brocaar … I am going to open new topic on a proper forum
