TechTip: Data Transmission with OTT netDL and FTP Server

This Tech Tip explains how to set up automatic data transmission from OTT netDL to an FTP server via a mobile Internet connection (GPRS). Please mind that encryption is not possible (sFTP or FTPs are not supported by OTT netDL).

We require an OTT netDL 500 or 1000 with an internal modem (variant B… or C…), inserted SIM card (contact surface downwards; PIN known or unlocked), and connected GSM antenna. In addition, you need the login information of an FTP server as well as the APN (Access Point Name) of your mobile network operator. Sensors are optional.
