I am attempting to use monero wallet on ubuntu 16.04 by attaching to a daemon on windows 7 in the same LAN, both are running version Wolfram Warptangent, but using the command ./monero-wallet-cli --daemon-address gives the following error: Error: Daemon uses a different RPC version that the wallet: Either update one of them, or use --allow-mismatched-daemon-version. I tried using --allow-mismatched-daemon-version but I still get this error: Error: refresh failed: no connection to daemon. Please make sure daemon is running.. Blocks received: 0

On the daemon I check with the status command and I have Height: 1188586/1188586 (100.0%) on mainnet, not mining, net hash 37.33 MH/s, v3, up to date, 50+18 connections so it is certainly running and accepting incoming connections.

  • When you used the --allow-mistmatched-daemon command, you also used the --daemon-host command as well, correct? If not try that. If so, then I'm still baffled. On running the daemon, you ran --rpc-bind-ipcommand using the node's IP, correct? Commented Nov 27, 2016 at 0:44
  • nope, I didn't use rpc-bind-ip. it's working now.

Did you follow the instructions noted in the answer to this question?

How do I use a computer with a wallet to access a headless node at my home?

I notice you mentioned --daemon-address as opposed to --daemon-host. I'm not sure if both those addresses work and are interchangeable.

  • i restarted the daemon with rpc-bind-ip and the wallet is working as needed. does this mean i cannot use the daemon from a remote IP now? or will it still work since the NAT is forwarding the ports from the WAN IP to a the local IP? i don't plan on needing to use it from a remote IP but this is the next question my thought process went to.

    I'm curious about the same thing. I think the answer is you definitely can. You probably need to register your IP with DynDNS or No-IP, since your home IP is likely not static. You should look into this more. Then IMO, once you have more knowledge on how you think it would work, this would be a good new question to ask. Commented Nov 27, 2016 at 5:13

    It just occurred to me (duh) that the answer to your follow-up is almost definitely what I already pointed out, with the added point that all the details relevant to connecting to a remote note will apply. The only difference is you'll substitute your IP or chosen DNS entry (web address) for the remote node's web address. Commented Nov 27, 2016 at 5:40
