Blacklist dev addr

With the latest version of firmware, Dragino gateways like LPS8, LIG16… now are able to blacklist (or whitelist) dev addr’s or fport’s. This function has been implemented a few versions ago, but I never got it running until today.
Using this function, a pre-selection is done by the gateway. The blacklisted data are not sent to TTS , they don’t use internet bandwidth anymore.

On this forum we have had multiple (lengthy) discussions on why filtering at gateway level is bad for the community network. Anyone interested: use search to find the discussions.
Please do not use filters at gateway level!
