Overview Info

These are the high-level steps to connect a Legato device to AirVantage:

You'll need an account on AirVantage Server, you can check with your Sierra Wireless contact.

Once you are connected to your AirVantage account, you can do the following steps:

Create a new System in AirVantage Server:

  • From the Inventory menu, choose Systems.
  • Click the Create button (+ symbol): enter a Name (used for retrieval).
  • In the Gateway tab, click Create a New Gateway (+ symbol), a new windows will appear: enter the IMEI of your device.
  • Click Create.
  • Once you got back on system creation window, click the Application field select 'Legato_Beta'.
  • Select "I want to activate my system after creating it".
  • Click Create.

Force a connection using the Agent Shell:

  • Connect to the device using ssh
  • Telnet to the agent shell using "telnet localhost 2000"
  • In the agent shell, check the server URL: ":agent.config.server.url".
  • Verify that the URL is set to "tcp://"
  • then request a connection ":agent.srvcon.connect()"

This manually forces a connection to the server. You can also set up automatic connections or make user applications to trigger connections.

Check device status on the AirVantage Server:

  • From the Monitor menu, choose Systems
  • Browse to your device (by the name you created or the IMEI).
  • Click Details.

The Last seen field should be updated with a recent date. You can also see the initial data exchange in the Timeline screen.
