While trying to set up The Things Outdoor Gateway using https://www.thethingsnetwork.org/docs/gateways/thethingsoutdoor/ it seems the only port open on the unit is ssh. admin/admin does not work and I am unable to find the default user/pass for this unit. What am I missing here.
Where did you buy that gateway ?
ok… I’m a bit supprised … you must be one of the first who owns one
The units look super solid and I am desperate to get it working
Me too - thought these were going out through RS and have been monitoring ready to buy a couple of test units!
wonder how CT got them - and who else has access to them before RS release - if there is another wholesaler/distributor with stock would like to know so I can grab one to eval…
Have you asked CT if they sold you the unit?!
I can confirm we have VERY limited stocks of the outdoor gateway at Connected Things, I think these are some of the first available, fresh from China. We’ve been working with TTN/TTI to get them out to the first folk that got in touch with TTI to register interest, before they hit general circulation. Don’t worry @Jeff-UK, we didn’t do anything sneaky to get them!
We hope to have more from the next (much bigger) batch that is coming soon.
In the meantime, yes, I can confirm the problem @rocketfarm has is the same on the test unit I have. We’re working with TTI to sort this out. All part of the fun of being an early adopter!
Would have “registered interest” with TTN/TTI if I had known…message was ‘release through RS’ so was waiting patiently! Well done for stealing a march on the market though!
So some good news, we have a workaround for the problems with the web GUI so it’s possible to get the gateways up and running.
If you’ve ordered a gateway from Connected Things Store/Sensational Systems then you should have just received an email from me with a guide. If you didn’t get one then give me a shout and I’ll send it over to you.
I have two, just beginning the set up this weekend. Build quality is vgood and the 16 channels / geolocation and 3/4G backhaul will certainly disrupt the OGW market in a positive way.
Will post a set blog when I am up and running.
I didn’t get one, can you send it to me please
For the latest gateways you should be able to follow the instructions at the bottom of this page https://connectedthings.store/gb/lorawan-gateways/the-things-outdoor-gateway-868-mhz.html
And then the TTN docs here https://www.thethingsnetwork.org/docs/gateways/thethingsoutdoor/
Does that work for you?
No guide with mine either (US version). I did have it running briefly but now the log says “ERROR: [main] failed to start the concentrator” and no packets get sent.
