I am simply trying to run
bitcoin-cli getinfo on the same machine that my bitcoin node is running on (with
my bitcoin.conf file is as follows:
server='1' rpcuser='username' rpcpassword='password' rpcport='8332'
The error message I receive is:
error: Could not connect to the server 127.0.0.1:0
This error is confusing me in two ways. First, my home network uses an Xfinity gateway (combined router/modem), and the local ip addresses look like
127.x.x.x. Second, why is the error suggesting that it tried to connect on port 0? I have specified in bitcoin.conf that the rpc port is 8332. In this current state I can run a node, but I cannot make any rpc calls, rendering it useless for my purposes. Any advice on how to fix this issue?
