I'm on video 5 of the Learncoin youtube series and I am getting an error when I try to run ./learncoind

2016-04-07 03:40:40 connect() failed after select(): Connection refused
2016-04-07 03:40:40 trying connection MY-DROPLET-IP:9333 

I have my SSH key setup for the droplet and the keys live in my ~/.ssh/id_rsa folder. I can access my droplet from the CLI using ssh root@MY-DROPLET-IP and then entering my SSH key password and my root password.

I don't really understand why ./learncoind isn't connecting.

  • If you run netstat -antlp | grep LIST on your droplet, is anything listening on port 9333? – Nick ODell Apr 8 '16 at 4:39
