Supported Firmware

Version 2.3.3. is supported by the LORIOT Gateway Software.

Please note, this gateway was announced to be discounted. Please check with Kerlink for more details. 

Software Installation Steps

Before the LORIOT Gateway Software can be set up we must make sure that no other packet forwarder is running in the background as it may block resources and cause packet loss.

In order to check if the Semtech Packet Forwarder is running connect via SSH to the IoT Station and execute the command ps -A | grep spf to show all related processes and where they are being executed.

799 root 2576 S {} /bin/sh -e /mnt/fsuser-1/spf/bin/
834 root 44500 S /mnt/fsuser-1/spf/bin/spf
835 root 2704 S logger -p local1.notice -t spf

If the result is something like above then proceed to stop the processes and remove the folder /mnt/fsuser-1/spf , after that you can safely install the LORIOT Gateway Software

In order to install the LORIOT Gateway Software please follow the steps as described in the Basic Installation page. 


There is a built in firewall in the gateway which after a factory reset is activated with the default rules.

These rules blocks outgoing requests so new iptables rules must be added or the firewall can be disabled completely in the following way:

Set the “FIREWALL” parameter to “no” in /etc/sysconfig/network configuration file, then restart the network script by typing /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart.

Disabling the firewall can be done with the following command:

/etc/init.d/firewall stop
