Since the POST only works one way, you will need to generate separate POST requests to our server to send downlink messages. You can use the URL https://[server name, e.g. eu1.loriot.io]/1/rest to HTTP POST data.

The message you need to send is the same as the one described in the downlink API docs, but it needs to
