The configuration tool for the Node only supports a sub set of all settings in the Node, to access the full configuration connect the Node to a computer with a USB cable. The node will be recognised as a serial port and you need a terminal program to configure it. The procedure is OS specific and some suggestions can be found below
The name of the serial port can be found with dmesg
$ dmesg [ .... ] [22942.980255] usb 3-2: new full-speed USB device number 13 using xhci_hcd [22943.109845] usb 3-2: New USB device found, idVendor=0483, idProduct=5740 [22943.109852] usb 3-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [22943.109855] usb 3-2: Product: Loco Positioning Node [22943.109858] usb 3-2: Manufacturer: Bitcraze AB [22943.109861] usb 3-2: SerialNumber: 1C0030000F51485336373420 [22943.110697] cdc_acm 3-2:1.0: ttyACM3: USB ACM device $
The serial port can be opened with your favorite serial console, picocom:
$ picocom /dev/ttyACM3
Find the serial port with ls
$ ls -a /dev/tty.usb* /dev/tty.usbmodem1415501
To open the serial port
$ screen /dev/tty.usbmodem1415501
When you connect to the Node you will be presented with the current configuration
