I'm trying to connect wallet-rpc to a remote node but I get an error:

Wallet initialization failed: no connection to daemon

The remote node is: node.moneroworld.com:18089

This is the command that I've run and the output:

./monero-wallet-rpc --rpc-bind-port 18082 --wallet-file /path/to/wallet-viewonly --password "" --disable-rpc-login --daemon-host node.moneroworld.com:18089

Does this mean that node.moneroworld.com isn't running? How can I connect to remote node without running daemon on my host?


I tried with --daemon-host af.node.moneroworld.com:18089 and the wallet-rpc is connected
