Q1: How can I download the history packets to my PC from Network Server > Packets page on gateway web GUI?
Answer: Not support. The Packets page is mainly used for checking, generally it’s recommended to transfer data to application server for data analyze and storage. If you want store data on the gateway, you can use Node-RED feature to achieve it, for more detail information, please contact Milesight IoT support.
Q2: How can I reduce the traffic cost by limit the useless sensor data between gateway to the Network Server?
Answer: If you're using Embedded NS in Milesight Gateway, the sensor data will not be sent out then there is not traffic cost. If you’re using third-party NS, it's possible to customize the gateway firmware to filter sensor data by specific fport.
Q3: Why the Applications and Profiles tab in Network Server page can not display normally when remote accessing the gateway?
Answer: Please double check if you add port forwarding/mapping rules on the 8080 and 8081 port to upper network devices.
Q4: Can I forward one sensor data to multiple HTTP application servers at the same time on gateway?
Answer: Yes, it can support setting multiple HTTP application servers by using Node-RED feature.

Answer: Not support to clear downlink queue manually now, but when sensor is disconnected from gateway, the downlink queue will be cleared automatically.
Q6: How can I debug the device decoder on Milesight Gateway?
Answer: You can add device decoder to Function node of Node-RED, and test the result via Debug node.
Q7: How can I add time information and in my local time zone format in the device decoder?
Answer: Add below two lines of code in the decoder for getting time information in local time zone format.
var localtime = new Date(LoRaObject.time).toLocaleString();
