Set Up a Dragino Device

Sharing and Organizations

These instructions are intended as a guide for remote access. As a general rule, if your  Dragino is hosting a service which is accessible via a LAN address and port, then Remote.It can be used for access from outside the LAN without port forwarding on a public IP address OR your Dragino can be used as a jump host to access other LAN devices such as a network printer.

This guide describes the installation and basic usage of for Dragino devices and is based on operations with the Dragino LG308 LoRa Gateway running on firmwarelgw-5.4.164031589. If you are using a different firmware version or a different device, the actual contents and messages displayed may differ from those described in this guide.

Remote.It is supported on the following Dragino devices:

  • Firmware version 5.4.1632916986 or higher
  • Device models: LG01N, OLG01N (Note: LG01-P, LG01-S does not support), LG02, OLG02, LG308, DLOS8, LSP8, LIG16, MS14 series (If installed with the same firmware.)
