@federico.strumia Given this was coming up for 4 years ago, things may have changed. Suggest looking at the current installation instructions for pip: https://pip.pypa.io/en/stable/installing/ Failing which see how you can get pkgutil installed, ideally using opkg.

hello karanam aditya,

I just took a look at the PICtail Plus pinouts and the pinouts of the mini PCIe connector on the back side of the IoT2020 board, and it doesn't look to me like they'd work together. But the number of signals actually in use on the RN2483 PICtail Plus board's connector is small (as you can see by the relatively few jumpers in the photo of Proone's setup). If you already have the PICtail board, and are looking for a way to do like Proone is doing but have it mounted nicely to the IoT2020, you could mount the PICtail board to a general purpose Arduino shield prototyping board. Instead of using push-on jumpers, you could solder the appropriate connections from the PICtail connector to the proto shield board. That would help keep the wires short, and give you easy attach to / removal from the IoT2020 interface without having to mess with getting multiple individual wires in the right places each time. (It would also give you a place to put a few more bits of circuitry if you found later you need it.)

I, too, am curious how it eventually worked out for Proone.

hello Proone, i see in the picture you shared that interfacing Siemens IoT2020 with RN2483 PICtail Plus lora module, my question is "Is it possible to plug the PICTAIL PLUS Module on the rear side of the ioT2020??" and can you please share any updates with your work would be very much appreciated, Thankyou

How many digital inputs / outputs this device have?
What is the energy consumption?

Thanks Proone, "easy_install pip" (note the underscore) is working for me.
Now that I know this: "easy_install pyserial" also works, so actually the steps for installation of pip were not necessary.

Ivomans, i think you can install pip with easy-install pip

Hi, i follow this tutorial but got stuck when i made ./abp-tx-test.py. It freeze on sys reset and nothing else. I use the RN2483 pictail module. Did you have an idea ? Thank

ivomans, i'm no python expert but it look like you need to install a few python packages
or perform an update via opkg package manager.

anjaliranika, Intel has re-arranged their repository structure, Once I figure out the new structure I will post it for all to see.

I got stuck getting pip:

ImportError: No module named getpass

Anybody know alternative way to get the module getpass installed first?

Had same problem like anjaliranika. This was caused because DNS was not set.
Solved by editing file /etc/resolv.conf. For instance into:
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4
