I've tried using a public node as well as a local node, but the wallet never seems to connect.
If I run the GUI via the terminal (
./monero-wallet-gui --daemon-host 127.0.0.1:18080), I get some log output that matches what I'd expect:
2017-08-21 13:00:17.307 ERROR net.http contrib/epee/include/net/http_client.h:387 HTTP_CLIENT: Failed to SEND
2017-08-21 13:00:27.310 ERROR net.http contrib/epee/include/net/http_client.h:441 Unexpected recv fail
This repeats several times over.
What am I doing wrong?
