Check the PPP (GPRS)

First, check if your device is connected to the GPRS network.

1. Connect the console.
2. Type modem to display the modem information.

Correct: The device gets an IP (ppp0).

Incorrect: The PPP remains down.

If you get no IP (ppp down) we advise to check the APN and test the SIM card in a cellphone.

Check the log

1. Connect the console.
2. According to your configuration type log dataEmitter or log binaryGate to display the log and check that data are correctly sent to the server.

If the device is not able to send data check the PPP and the configuration.
