My cli wallet was working before but now I get the error mesage when I log in (or refresh) that the wallet cannot connect to daemon.

Error: wallet failed to connect to daemon: >2xmrnode5itf65lz.onion:18081. Daemon either is not started or wrong >port was passed. Please make sure daemon is running or change the >daemon address using the 'set_daemon' command.

There is still coins in my wallet but I can't use them because of this issue.

Did some research and this triggered me to run monerod

This is still running now, but it did already give some warning messages, like

no two valid DNS TXT records were received


No incoming connections - check firewalls/routers allow port 18080

I do not know anything of how crypto works behind the hood, and I am really worried that I will have lost my coin. I do still have my seed for this wallet.

Does anyone know whatwould be the best way to troubleshoot this issue, or get going again with this wallet?

Also, I am confused about what monerod does. I read that it might be downloading lots of data. However, I am running my wallet on a usb stick in Tails and if that's the case there will most likely not be enough space on it to complete this command.

Thank you so much for trying to helping me out! Any advice is greatly appreciated.

  • By changing the log-level, I just found out that monerod is constantly returning error code saying that it 'failed to connect to xxx.xx.xxx.xx:18080. This is interspersed with the message "Failed to connect to any of seed peers, continuing without seeds" – morphedkalimero May 27 '20 at 2:33
  • Check that ping xxx.xx.xxx.xx returns responses. If you have it, try nmap xxx.xx.xxx.xx. And check that /etc/resolv.conf contains valid dns servers. – Mogens TrasherDK May 27 '20 at 4:08
  • Got the same problem, not connected the daemon apparently... still working on it – Pedro Aug 29 '20 at 9:50
