Error while Establishing Connection: Multichain Node

+4 votes


I'm encountering an unexpected issue while attempting to establish a connection to a Multichain node. Despite following the recommended steps from the documentation, I keep encountering the following error message:

Error: Unable to connect to node: Connection refused

Here's a brief overview of my setup:

  1. Multichain Version: 2.0.3
  2. Operating System:Ubuntu Linux 20.04
  3. Steps Taken:
    • Installed Multichain using [Installation Method]
    • Created a new chain named "[Chain Name]"
    • Launched the node using the command: multichaind [Chain Name] -daemon

My Multichain configuration file ([config-file.conf]) appears to be correctly set up with the necessary parameters. I've also ensured that any firewall or network restrictions are not causing this issue.

Could someone please provide guidance on how to troubleshoot and resolve this connection error? Are there any specific log files I should examine for more detailed error messages? I'm eager to continue exploring the capabilities of Multichain, and any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your time and expertise!

Are you connecting from the same server as that which is hosting the node?
