Login to web interface #
To start configuring your conduit connect a computer to its LAN interface and open a browser to
http://192.168.2.1/. This opens the login dialog for the configuration interface of the conduit. If it is your first time configuring the conduit, you will be prompted to create a username and password.
First-Time Setup Wizard #
After login (be patient, it takes a while) the First-Time Setup Wizard opens:
Click Next to begin.
Choose Password #
The first step it to change the current default password (
Keep your new password in a safe place, you will have to reset to factory defaults if you lose it!
Time Configuration #
Select your time zone and update both date and time if required.
Click Next to proceed.
Internet Configuration #
Set the Mode to DHCP Client if you use DHCP on your network (most likely) or manually configure your internet connection. Click Finish once you are done.
If you changed the IP Address or selected DHCP a popup will appear warning you that the DHCP Server of the Conduit itself will be disabled. This is fine, so click OK to continue.
Update firmware #
Before you continue, verify that the Conduit AEP runs Firmware 5.3 or later. This is displayed in the header of the web interface. If it is out-dated, follow the instructions to upgrade to the latest version.
Access & Network Configuration #
As the LAN interfaces do not allow specifying a DNS server and we need DNS to work later on we will now change to network to WAN. However as this would lock us out we need to allow remote access for the management first.
Skip this step if you are using a cellular modem to connect the gateway to the internet. Just configure the cellular modem per instructions on the MultiTech website.
Access Configuration #
In the left hand menu choose Administration followed by Access Configuration:
On the next screen tick the boxes marked yellow in the next screenshot:
When you select Via WAN under HTTPS a warning will appear. Just click Continue.
Once you have selected the 3 checkboxes, click Submit to save the changes.
Network Interfaces #
Select Setup > Network Interfaces from the left menu:
In the next screen select the pencil in the eth0 row:
In the configuration popup change the Type from LAN to WAN.
If you use a static IP, fill out the gateway and DNS entries. Use 188.8.131.52 for Google’s public DNS if you do not have (or know) the local DNS server information.
Click Finish to save.
Now select Save and Restart from the menu:
You will be prompted to confirm the restart. Choose OK to proceed.
Disconnect the temporary network cable and connect the Conduit to the target network while it is restarting.
TTN Configuration #
Once the Conduit has finished restarting and is connected to the target network, connect a computer to the same network and login to the Conduit by entering its IP in a browser.
If you have not configured your Conduit with a static IP, you will have to find out which IP the DHCP assigned to it.
Click the LoRaWAN tab on the left.
In the Mode dropdown, choose Basic Station.
Select LNS in the Credentials dropdown.
See the Basics Station guide for the Server Certificate and Server Address.
After entering the LNS configuration, click the Submit button, and then click Save and Apply. The gateway will apply the changes.
