I have been very confused on how to use the rpcbind and rpcallowip arguments for bitcoind. I have a bitcoin core node running on a raspberrypi and I want it to accept json-rpc calls from one of my other devices (connected to the same network as the node). I know I need to use rpcbind and rpcallowip inside of my bitcoin.conf file, but I don't quite understand how. What values should I give to these paramaters?
