401 unauthorized in multichain-node in windows and linux

+3 votes

I created a new multichain with default values except the anyone-can-connect to true, im trying to connect to multichain-node but i got "401 unauthorized", and "This host is not known" if i try from terminal putting all parameters

port: 8346,

host: '',

user: 'multichainrpc',

password: 'E5rWYKww2tUHhnTieff8CgEjMTGEK3Ae4Eg1YZxoq7SE' //In multichain.config

I'm using these commands "multichaind test -daemon" or "multichaind test@ -daemon" to start the multichain, i can use all the commands multichain-cli directly via terminal but JSON-RPC multichain-node i can't


In python (mcrpc) it worked

So if I understand correctly you can connect to the node's API using multichain-cli and using a Python library, but not using some other method? What is that other method?

from multichain-node(https://github.com/scoin/multichain-node) i can't even connect to the multichain, but from terminal(multichain-cli) and mcrpc(https://github.com/coblo/mcrpc) i can use all commands and methods
Are you using exactly the same host, port, username and password in the Node library as in the Python library you had success with?

Great, glad you got it working!
