[SOLVED] sgsn / ggsn issues
« on: August 03, 2018, 09:30:55 AM »
update: This has been solved. See my last message below

I've been having some issues with the ggsn when running in nipc mode.

When the GGSN doesn't work, i.e. when it can't create the link; then 2G works OK.  Mobile can register and place calls
When It does come up, them the mobile doesn't stay registered and I get the following errors:

Code: [Select]

I've been searching for docs on how this routing takes place, but have not found any.

I'm running the current SVN versions of yate and yatebts and using a BladeRF x40
  bladeRF-cli version:        1.5.1-git-821f8794
  libbladeRF version:         1.9.0-git-821f8794

  Firmware version:           1.8.0
  FPGA version:               0.7.1

Thanks in advance for your help

Here is a paste of my rawconfig

I'm working with the trunk versions of the code taken from SVN.
My test device is a Google Nexus 5x

I'm using a bladeRF x40

[Solved] sgsn / ggsn issues

OK.. I got this working.

The issue was actually my NAT / Routing on the rpi.  The iptables configuration on the Wiki are wrong.
Once I fixed them to this
Code: [Select]
sudo iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o wlan0 -j MASQUERADE
It started magically working

The error message that sent me on a witch hunt should just be ignored and the border case addressed in the code.

Thanks davidb00 for your help. I did learn a lot on how yates + yatebts work in the process, but I'm happy it works now.
