I found a few answers on here:

very useful… as for the pkt frd options, just finding lots of different repos is what I was getting after. (legacy udp seems the best right now?)

I already have a few pi’s doing spi… can’t I just add the RAK831 module to one of those? I’ll try node-red too, I was just using it to toggle the reset pin. pretty easy.

Thanks,
Brad

ah… to answer my own question:

does anyone here use node-red to toggle the RAK831 reset pin?

Why would you install over 70 megabyte of software to do what can by done with WiringPi (< 4MB) and a shell script of less than 20 lines?

Should be:

Reading or at least scanning articles before asking for advice will be useful. :wink:
https://github.com/hallard/RAK831-Zero is about hardware only and forwards to https://github.com/ch2i/LoraGW-Setup for setting up the software:

For RAK831 https://github.com/ch2i/LoraGW-Setup will get you covered
(without running into issues related to pin differences between RAK831 and iC880a).

Initially https://github.com/ch2i/LoraGW-Setup only addressed a RAK831-Zero based gateway,
but currently covers both RAK831 and iC880a based configurations and different Raspberry Pi devices
(not limited to just RAK831 with Raspberry Pi Zero W).

(I have updated the start topic and added above information.)
