I have my Sodaq / Ublox SARA-R410M connected using SK Telecom here in Korea.
Sending UDP and getting the immediate response is no problem.
Sending direct UDP packets to the Ublox however seems to get blackholed.
I enable URC
I open a socket
Then listen on a particular port 2345
Everything returns OK
Then I use “Send to Device / UDP / Port 2345” from the hologram dashboard and get “Socket error: timed out”. Is it safe to assume that my carrier is blocking incoming UDP?
Then I tried to SMS using the Dashboard but got nothing on the Ublox
Then I bought a phone number (US) for the SIM, then SMSed it using a phone, but got nothing on the Ublox either.
I also tried to use SpaceBridge, set up keys, tunnel then used nc to send data through the ssh tunnel, but of course, nothing appeared on the Ublox.
Anyways, since we know UDP is working (send with an immediate receive), any idea why direct UDP (without first sending) and SMS seems to get blackholed?
