Hello everybody. I started to install all the Cardano Environment because I wat to mint NFTs, so I have not created a pool or stake pool. I already have cardano-cli installed version 1.27.0 and all the steps from Cardano docs. From Mainnet , I need the tip, slot/block. When I try to do
cardano-cli query tip --mainnet
cardano-cli: Network.Socket.connect: <socket: 11>: does not exist (No such file or directory)
I saw in different forums that it can be because I dont have a node running. So I run my node and I see how I get “Chain Extended:…” and I get block and slot number increasing… Until I get this error -image attached-.
Then, based on that error, I read that it was because I dont have my cardano block running. So I run it, but it keeps telling me that I dont have my node.cert.
And when I see how to create my node.cert, I found that it depends to generate it AGAIN the data I should receive from “cardano-cli query tip --mainnet” to calculate it.
What can I do to solve that error and retrieve the data I need?
So what can I do about it? Thank you in advance!!
