Configure UDP Packet Forwarder

This section contains instructions for connecting to The Things Enterprise Stack using the UDP Packet Forwarder.

Select the UDP Packet Forwarder in the forwarder selection list

In the Configuration pane, click Edit (blue button with a pencil)

On the Global tab of the configuration editor, set the following configuration:

  1. Address: Address of the Gateway Server. If you followed the Getting Started guide this is the same as what you use instead of thethings.example.com.
  2. Up port: UDP upstream port of the Gateway Server, typically 1700.
  3. Down port: UDP downstream port of the Gateway Server, typically 1700.

Save the configuration and start the packet forwarder.

Note: the UDP Packet Forwarder does not correctly handle unstable connectivity and has no security.
