I'm trying to sync GUI version: 0.17.1.8-8e6a2cde (Qt 5.9.9), Embedded Monero version: 0.17.1.8-release, in Advanced mode (Local node).

These are the steps:

  1. Launch Monero Desktop app
  2. Put in 8 PIN to Ledger Nano s running firmware version 1.6.1
  3. Typed in Monero wallet password
  4. Get message "Opening Wallet" and
  5. answer Export View key question on Nano s
  6. Get message "Starting Local Node"
  7. Network Status: Starting the node
  8. Then I get "Daemon Failed to start Timed out, local node is not responding after 120 secs

I upgraded from GUI version: 0.17.1.7 to GUI version: 0.17.1.8 "--enable-dns-blocklist" was typed in Daemon Startup flags a few attempts ago

The app worked up to about two weeks ago, at GUI version: 0.17.1.7, around the time your website was being attacked and on the same day I removed my current Anti-virus (MalwareBytes) and allowed monerod.exe in Microsoft Defender Antivirus.

The daemon log shows.....: Error: Couldn't connect to daemon: 127.0.0.1:18081

Please advise on why my desktop is not connecting to Monero. Thanks
