The Things Outdoor Gateway SSH

While trying to set up The Things Outdoor Gateway using 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 ?

ConnectedThings .

ok… I’m a bit supprised :open_mouth: … you must be one of the first who owns one :sunglasses:

The units look super solid and I am desperate to get it working :slight_smile:

Me too - thought these were going out through RS and have been monitoring ready to buy a couple of test units! :frowning:

:thinking: 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! :wink:

Hi all

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

Hi Rainer

For the latest gateways you should be able to follow the instructions at the bottom of this page
And then the TTN docs here

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.
