Setup of WIndows based LoRa server for off web data collection

I just joined this forum this morning as I have been hunting for documentation of how to set up a Windows based laptop to collect data from a LoRa gateway I learned a little about Chirpstack and Docker which appears I need both. Seems most of the documentation for config etc is just for Linux,Unix platforms. Can anyone provide me with some links where I might find documentation and process how to build my laptop as a server? My problem in the past was when I used the IOT server I would get dropped by bad cell service. I really need a standalone server to build my network for our remote sensing needs. Any insight or help would be greatly appreciated. I am a newbie at this

Thanks Much

I believe that when you are using Docker on your Windows machine, that effectively you are using a Linux environment as the Docker runs in a VM.
