Node Wallet and Transactions

I am going through the Stake Pool Course. I am at Lesson 2. I requested funds from the Faucet page and received 1000 ADA.


Your transaction has been successful and 1000 Ada have been sent to addr_test1qqq0akt0fnqh9j3vxgnxu4059d39usx9mmj0t4ufy7lzet6mjdsfr6qsv6e8jvnu6dktufu7ftqwda8ffsuerr8k264sdzxtuk .

Please verify the following transaction hash:


However, when I queried the wallet, I do not see the funds:

johnny@CardanoCourse:~/cardano-src/keysnaddresses$ cardano-cli query utxo --address $(cat payment.addr) --testnet-magic 1097911063
TxHash TxIx Amount

I have a few questions:

  1. How do I check my node (the one I created and ran locally)?
    a. I tried using the tip command, but I do not think it is my node
  2. How do I troubleshoot the funds transfer to my node?
  3. How do I return the test tokens when I am done?
