I run a Mikrotik LTAP LR8 in The Things Stack community V3. Created an app, added a device and that all went flawlessly, join requests, join ack, upload , all well.
Then I set up a local (192.168.1.190) Chirpstack stack, added an application and a device, switched the network server to 192.168.1.190, and that went as easy as TTN.
Now LTAP allows packet forwarding to multiple network servers. So I added both in the gateway.
My gateway forwards to both Chirpstack, status, joins, uploads, downloads, and TTN , all fine.
I created 2 (different) nodes, one registered as device in Chirpstack, the other in TTN. That works fine so far. This would allow for opening “closed Chirpstack network assigned” gateways to provide coverage for TTN.
Simultaneously registering a third node as device in both NMS failed, in practice it may not happen, and may have unintended consequences.
My questions :
- is it ok to run a gateway in this configuration?
- is anyone running the gateway like this and are my presumptions correct?
- did you encounter problems or are there things you definitely not do in this setup?
