I am actually trying hard to configure a gateway-relay or repeater.
I tried to follow this LoRaWanRelay documentation and I guess I am close to the result, but I need your help if you have an expertise.
I bought the ST B-L072Z-LRWAN1 Discovery kit and I did the following step:
- We dowloaded this (for Mac) to ~/Download
- I dowloaded this and copy the files to /usr/local/gcc_arm
- I edited ~/.profile and added the line
- export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/gcc_arm/gcc-arm-none-eabi-8-2018-q4/bin
- I cd ~/Download/LoRaWionanRelay-master
- I lunched Make from ~/Download/LoRaWanRelay-master
- All went fine.
After the Make I got a new folder named ~/Download/LoRaWanRelay-master/build with a lot of different files, with some extention like .lst and .o and .d, and finally a file with .bin extention.
I connected my discobery board to ma mac with a USB a card and it act as a USB stick. I can past the bin file to the discovery board.
But I am confuse about how to configure the repeater. Here there are some instruction.
I supposed again, I first need to create a new devise (named repeater) in my TTN console and hen I edited the file UserCode/MainRelay.ccp and I have to change the above keys with the keys of my application/devise. It’s what I did yesterday.
I should now compile with make and past the new MiniMouse.bin file to my discovery kit.
If yes, and supposing, I have 3 nodes out the range of the gateway, and the repeater between my gateway and the 3 nodes, and as I only create a devise (name repeater), how TTN will distinguisg the messages of 3 nodes?
Let say, my nodes 1 and 2 are in the gateway range. In my TTN console I created two devises for node 1 and 2…
My nodes 3,4 and 5 are out the range and in my TTN i created a devise for the repeater.
How will be distinguished my message from node 3,4 and 5?
It’s not clear for me, why we need to create a devise per node, and in the [GatewayRelay doc](http://I supposed again, I first need to create a new devise in my TTN console ) they do not mentionned that?
Some one could clarify me the configuration of the repeater? That would be great!!!
And what about the Node-Red relay manager? It should be installed on my Apache server? or where?
Is mandatory to use it? If someone can explain me how Node Red relay manager works and how it need to be installed/configured, that would be great!! The doc it’s not so clear for me, the novice
(I hope I was clear and provide you enough information. Feel free to ask more and thank again for your help)
Thank a lot
