I tried many of the monero nodes on monero world and many of them do not connect reliably when using the wallet cli. I find the cake wallet mobile app remote node to be most reliable. What is the remote node connection?
You can use the following cakewallet remote nodes as used in the mobile wallets:
If your using the monero wallet cli command, you use it like this:
./monero-wallet-cli --wallet-file=MY_WALLET_FILE --daemon-address xmr-node-usa-east.cakewallet.com:18081
