Basics Station & TEKTELIC MQTT Bridge Conflict

Please note that from the factory, TEKTELIC gateways are configured to connect to TEKTELIC Network Server. This means that once the Gateway connects to AWS IoT Core, it is important to make sure that the MQTT Bridge on the gateway does not connect to TEKTELIC Network Sever as the gateway will NOT be able to connect to both Network Servers at the same time. However, the gateway can be configured to connect to TEKTELIC OAM Server and AWS IoT Core at the same time.

Configuration of MQTT Bridge without OAM Server

  1. If you are not using  TEKTELIC OAM Server , we highly recommend you check it out. If you require an account, please let us know, we can create an account for you. The TEKTELIC OAM Server provides various Remote Management and Monitoring features for Gateways. Please refer to TEKTELIC OAM Server User Guide for more information.
    1. Comment ns_host  field with a # at the beginning of the line
    2. Comment ns_type field with a # at the beginning of the line
    3. Comment gw_user field with a # at the beginning of the line
    4. Comment gw_password field with a # at the beginning of the line
  2. After saving the file please restart TEKTELIC MQTT Bridge and Basics Station with the commands below:
$      /etc/init.d/mqtt-bridge restart
$      /etc/init.d/tektelic-bstn restart

Configuration of MQTT Bridge with OAM Server

  1. If you are using TEKTELIC OAM Server, you will have to edit the /etc/default/mqtt-bridge.conf file as follows.
    1. Comment ns_host  field with a # at the beginning of the line
    2. Comment ns_type field with a # at the beginning of the line
    3. Comment gw_user field with a # at the beginning of the line
    4. Comment gw_password field with a # at the beginning of the line
    5. Uncomment oam_host filed by removing the # at the beginning of the line
    6. Uncomment gw_oam_user field by removing the # at the beginning of the line
    7. Uncomment gw_oam_password field by removing the # at the beginning of the line

  2. After saving the file please restart TEKTELIC MQTT Bridge and Basics Station with the commands below:
$      /etc/init.d/mqtt-bridge restart
$      /etc/init.d/tektelic-bstn restart
