I created private network and mined some ether, when I was try to send some ether to another account in my private network I am getting "Error: Returned error: insufficient funds for gas * price + value - Private network" error.


   "config": {
     "chainId": 4545,
     "homesteadBlock": 0,
     "eip155Block": 0,
     "eip158Block": 0
"alloc" : {},
"coinbase" : "0x75bcb134477f42f6fefbf177f9a610c0665e23a6",
"difficulty" : "0x20000",
"extraData" : "",
"gasLimit" : "0x2fefd8ffffffffff",
 "nonce" : "0x0000000000000042",
 "mixhash" : 
"parentHash" : 
"timestamp" : "0x00"
  • most likely, the balance of the account sending transaction is 0 or very close to it
