Multichain CLI error - error: no response from server

+1 vote
I start a node (master-node) that initializes a chain via docker. I also initialized other nodes (slaves), and connect to the master-node chain. "anyone-can-connect" is made true so no permissions are required. It connects successfully ("Node started" message is shown) and I can see the data directory for each node.

I can connect multichain-cli (on my host machine ) to the master node and I can run commands such as getinfo.

When I try to connect to the slave nodes, and run a command, it says "error: no response from server".

Both docker containers are running.

Please search this Q&A forum for rpcallowip to understand how to instruct a MultiChain node to accept incoming API connections from non-local clients.

Edit: Yep, just saw the my script wasnt adding the rpcallowip setting to the slave node's multichain.conf, adding that fixed it. Thanks!
