Using basicstation on RPI gateway


I try to setup a RPI based gateway and I would like to use the basicstation software for that. I got the software running as described here and the gateway is able to receive messages from LoRa nodes when running the example. But how to connect basicstation to TTN? There seems no configuration instructions or examples available how to use it.

That is currently not supported. Only TTIG can connect to the Basic Station to TTN bridge.
TTN backend V3 implements BasicStation support but there is no timeline when it will be available on the community network yes.

Does this have to do with the packet forwarder protocol for UDP as described here?

Can this be used to connect to TTN?

Yes, that is the ‘legacy’ protocol when adding a gateway to TTN.
