Installation - Community Network Servers


Installation ➜ The WIFX LORIX One gateway has a built-in script which handles different cloud providers' packet forwarders.


✔ The LORIX One supports the LORIOT Community Servers out of the box. 

✔ Our binary is pre-installed at /opt/lorix/clouds/loriot.


To connect the gateway on the Community Network Servers simply follow these steps:


a) Log in to the User Interface and select or create a Network

b) Select Add a Gateway and select the LORIX One.

c) Enter the Gateway eth0 MAC address, location and select Register LORIX One gateway:

d) Connect your LORIX One gateway to the internet and it will connect to the server and show its status as Online.


✔ The gateway is now connected to the server and can start routing LoRaWAN device transmissions.
