Telegram Trigger: Bad Request

Describe the issue/error/question

after adding the “telegram-trigger” block and adding the API token there, when I click on the listen for event button, I get an error:

What is the error message (if any)?

Hey @denq,

Welcome to the community :tada:

Assuming you don’t already have a Telegram trigger running for your bot, does your n8n instance need to go out through a proxy to get to the internet?

Correct, trigger isn’t running. I just added it to workflow. I have no proxy in network.

Is it the only Telegram trigger for the bot you are using so no other applications using it?
