I'm trying to figure out how to connect my NodeJS app to a remote monero node. I need it to query the network.

Here's is the list of available JSON-RPC methods — Daemon RPC documentation

Here's the list of open nodes — https://moneroworld.com/

Here's what I do:

const rpc = require('json-rpc-client')
const host = 'node.moneroworld.com'
const port = '18089'
const client = new rpc({ host, port })
  .then(() => {
  .catch(error => {

Here's the error:

{ host: 'node.moneroworld.com', port: '18089' }
error:Error: getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND node.moneroworld.com node.moneroworld.com:18089
{ Error: getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND node.moneroworld.com node.moneroworld.com:18089
    at errnoException (dns.js:28:10)
    at GetAddrInfoReqWrap.onlookup [as oncomplete] (dns.js:73:26)
  code: 'ENOTFOUND',
  errno: 'ENOTFOUND',
  syscall: 'getaddrinfo',
  hostname: 'node.moneroworld.com',
  host: 'node.moneroworld.com',
  port: '18089' }

When I use another host:

const host = 'node.xmrbackb.one'
const port = '18081'

I get:

{ host: 'node.xmrbackb.one', port: '18081' }
error:Error: connect ETIMEDOUT
{ Error: connect ETIMEDOUT
    at Object.exports._errnoException (util.js:1034:11)
    at exports._exceptionWithHostPort (util.js:1057:20)
    at TCPConnectWrap.afterConnect [as oncomplete] (net.js:1096:14)
  code: 'ETIMEDOUT',
  errno: 'ETIMEDOUT',
  syscall: 'connect',
  address: '',
  port: 18081 }

I can't event connect to a node. What am I missing?

I've found a solution, using monero-rpc-client library. When I use node.moneroworld.com:18089 as host, the code doesn't work. When ip is used instead everything is OK. The ip is taken from here.

const rpcClientClass = require('monero-rpc-client')
const nodeAddress = ''
const rpcClient = new rpcClientClass(nodeAddress)
  .then(result => {
  .catch(error => {

Here's the result:

  "id": "0",
  "jsonrpc": "2.0",
  "result": {
    "count": 1492683,
    "status": "OK"
