The gateway can communicate in several ways.

Communication between the gateway and the server is done via ports 443 and/or 80 through cellular, ethernet or WiFi connection.

Unless it is using a cellular connection the gateway requires an IP address to be assigned to it via a DHCP server or similar.

Two way communication is required for monitor settings and gateway updates to be pulled down to the gateway.

The server never pushes data to the gateway. the gateway sends data to and requests data from the server.
