I'm having an issue with using the Monero RPC.
My node is all setup and working and using
monero-wallet-cli I can create a wallet, send funds etc, however when I try to use the RPC I get the following error.
I'm new to playing around with Monero node's RPC calls etc but I'm trying to learn and I'm sure its something really silly.
root@localhost:/walllet# monero-wallet-rpc --rpc-bind-port 18081 --rpc-login deleted:deleted --wallet-file wallet --prompt-for-password This is the RPC monero wallet. It needs to connect to a monero daemon to work correctly. Monero 'Oxygen Orion' (v0.17.3.0-release) Logging to monero-wallet-rpc.log 2022-03-27 10:46:04.818 W Loading wallet...

Run "set setup-background-mining 1" in monero-wallet-cli to change.
This is the part I'm struggling with. I don't get why I cant bind to port 18081 on 127.0.0.1 as nothing else is bound to it (as far as I'm aware).
2022-03-27 10:46:12.116 I Binding on 127.0.0.1 (IPv4):18081 2022-03-27 10:46:13.483 F Error starting server: Failed to bind IPv4 (set to required) 2022-03-27 10:46:13.483 E Failed to initialize wallet RPC server
Any help or pointing in the right direction would be very grateful.
