I'm trying to connect my node to Sparrow wallet on two computers on the same network. As I understand it, I have to authenticate using username/password option on Sparrow. This is the same computer I have the node running on. I have the bitcoin.conf file set up with


However when I test the connection, I get this error message on Sparrow

Could not connect:

User/pass authentication failed

I've checked many times and the user and password match, so I'm not sure what is the issue here.

If I don't use the authentication option, Sparrow connects to the node with no issue. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
