Need PyGate tutorial clarification

    Thank you! I'm very new and have been searching for what config.json should be as it is only mentioned with no example.

    The Pygate tutorial also mentions, "Do not attach the antenna to the Lopy4 module. Also, make sure you disabled the Pybytes LoRa connection."
    What does this mean? Is this referring to:

    • Disabling Lora on the Gateway Lopy which I'm not seeing is an option in the API?
    • Disabling Pybytes? Would this need to be done on the node and/or gateway?
    pycom.pybytes_on_boot(False)
    
    • Flashing the Lopy without Pybytes support? Again, node and/or gateway?

    Always the best moment to critique/improve documentation. Thanks for the feedback! I'm adjusting some things to hopefully make these points clearer.

    and have been searching for what config.json should be as it is only mentioned with no example.

    Nowadays you get the json file directly from TTN. At the end of the registration, you can download it.

    The Pygate tutorial also mentions, "Do not attach the antenna to the Lopy4 module. Also, make sure you disabled the Pybytes LoRa connection."
    What does this mean?

    It means that if you use Pybytes on this gateway device, and you have enabled LoRa connection for this gateway device in the Pybytes website, then you should disable that LoRa connection on the Pybytes website.
