We have successfully been using a Boron LTE to collect weather station data and then store it on our FTP server using ParticleFtpClient.h. I do not have the authority to move us away from FTP use.
We added a Xenon and got the mesh network connected, but writing to the FTP server from the Xenon fails here:
ftp.open(hostname, port, timeout)
I suspect this is because FTP requires TCP (Xenon not capable) instead of UDP.
I am concerned that the Boron will be tied up with routing/gateway duties and not able to write data to the FTP server as well. Is there a more efficient use of network resources to get this data uploaded?
Thanks for reading.
