LoPy as a gateway send packet under TCP/IP
I am a now study LoPy and LoRa and I want to achieve an extension of server and client communicate using LoRa. The controlling PC able to send a packet of message to the client PC via LoRa. So this will achieve a long distance communicate using TCP/IP.
Anyone can give some example or similar project like this.
don’t recommend running TCP over LoRa itself.
Sir, can you please elaborate more on how to change the lora packet data into tcp/ip format?

The duty cycle / dwelling time restrictions on sub-1Ghz LoRa frequencies don’t usually (for most contries) support using it for TCP/IP traffic. Also you can have very long transmission times (over 1 second) at higher spreading factors which don’t work well with TCP/IP.
So really LoRa is meant to exchange short messages. You can however take the received messages, frame into TCP/IP and forward them over WiFi if you wish, just don’t recommend running TCP over LoRa itself.
