I am running the bitcoin daemon with the following config in VirtualBox:
testnet=1 daemon=1 server=1 txindex=1 mintxfee=0.001 txconfirmtarget=1 rpcuser=lubo rpcpassword=vranka rpcport=18332 rpcallowip=127.0.0.1 [test] rpcport=18332
And when I try to connect to it using the python-bitcoinrpc library:
from bitcoinrpc.authproxy import AuthServiceProxy, JSONRPCException rpc_connection = AuthServiceProxy("http://%s:%firstname.lastname@example.org:18332"%("lubo", "vranka")) best_block_hash = rpc_connection.getbestblockhash()
I get slapped with:
ConnectionResetError: [WinError 10054] An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host
This is where I am stuck for several hours and I don't have the slightest clue as to what may be wrong.
This is the port configuration of my VirtualBox. I am running Windows 10 as host and Ubuntu 18.04 server as guest.
Any help or guidance is warmly welcomed.
