Yes, thanks, I read most, if not all, the TTN Gateway central 1 thread and participated in it periodically. Some of it, especially in respect to troubleshooting, I haven’t necessarily understood fully.
My particular curiosity about ssh possibilities derived from acquiring an EveryNet TouchTag
after seeing it in the Cayenne list of devices presumably compatible with The Things Network.
The company provided me a DEVEUI, DEVADDR, Appskey and Netskey for the device.
I tried to connect it to an application that successfully provides traffic data to the console and Cayenne using TheThingsNetwork Nodes.
I used ttnctl to issue these two commands using the DevEUI, Netskey and Appskey the company had provided:
ttnctl devices register [Device ID] [DevEUI]
tnctl devices personalize [Device ID] [NwkSKey] [AppSKey]
But didn’t via the console find any signs of data being transmitted. Shaking the device gets me a visible green flash, which looks healthy…
I tried additionally issuing this command using the DevAddr provided by the company
ttnctl devices set touchtag_sr_94 --dev-addr [DevAddr] --override
Wasn’t sure if I should do that since it creates the warning: “WARN Manually changing the DevAddr of a device might break routing for this device”
I thought if I could ssh into the gateway that might help me determine if the gateway is receiving data from the device and forwarding it. I haven’t tried a UART connection, but perhaps I should, with trepidation, attempt that for the first time if that could get me the information and if there’s no simpler route to obtaining it. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
