ConnectInputs Error when writing to stream using raw transaction

+1 vote
Hi,

We are encountering the following error during a sendrawtransaction call:

ConnectInputs failed: mandatory-script-verify-flag-failed (Script failed an OP_CHECKSIGVERIFY operation)

We are signing the rawtx off-node using Javascript. It seems to happen for a particular from-address only. Other addresses don't encounter the same issue.

The transaction being sent involves writing to a stream. Sample decoded raw tx that encounters this issue:

Any advice on what we should be looking into?

There are various possibilities here. May I suggest also using MultiChain to sign the problematic transaction (using signrawtransaction and passing in the private key) and comparing the two signatures?

You also might want to take a look at multichaind-cold which can perform external signing for you:
