RAK831 Gateway problem "ERROR: local_conf.json is not a valid JSON file"

  • Hello everyone I am new to this. I am using RAK831 Gateway and raspberry pi3 B version for gateway communication.

    I have used RAK831-Raspberry-Pi3-Gateway-&-RAK811-LoRaNode-User-Manual.pdf and try to make gateway online but after entering " sudo ./start.sh"

    This command it shows error
    "ERROR: local_conf.json is not a valid JSON file"

    I dont know what to do. please help!

    Thanks ...

  • maybe you should check the local_conf.json file at /opt/ttn-gateway/bin/ .
    please refer the example below, you can just replace the string B827EBFFFE2DD4A8 and router.eu.thethings.network to make it work.

    "gateway_conf": {
    "gateway_ID": "B827EBFFFE2DD4A8",
    "servers": [ { "server_address": "router.eu.thethings.network", "serv_port_up": 1700, "serv_port_down": 1700, "serv_enabled": true } ],
    "ref_latitude": 0,
    "ref_longitude": 0,
    "ref_altitude": 0,
    "contact_email": "",
    "description": "ttn-ic880a"
