Ok, so my bitcoin node (0.15.1) is running, and fully synced up with the network. I'm using python and the 'bitcoinrpc' package. I want to access the RPC server from outside my network. I have RPC set up on the normal port 8332 which is opened up on my router. I have rpcallowip configured to the address of the computer I'm connecting from.
When I run my python program I get the following error, which I am having a hard time tracking down. (my program is called 'PollForAddress.py')
File "PollForAddress.py", line 46, in <module> mempool = nodeRPC.getrawmempool() File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/bitcoinrpc/authproxy.py", line 139, in __call__ response = self._get_response() File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/bitcoinrpc/authproxy.py", line 187, in _get_response 'code': -342, 'message': 'non-JSON HTTP response with \'%i %s\' from server' % (http_response.status, http_response.reason)}) bitcoinrpc.authproxy.JSONRPCException: -342: non-JSON HTTP response with '403 Forbidden' from server
any ideas whats going wrong?
