I’ve been up and running on testnet thanks to @laplasz Working through practicing transactions and following the Stake Pool Course. I can build keys and addresses, but ran into this while building a full simple transaction,
relay@relay-test3:~/keys$ export CARDANO_NODE_SOCKET_PATH=~/cardano-node/relay/db/node.socket
relay@relay-test3:~/keys$ cardano-cli transaction submit --tx-file tx.signed --testnet-magic 1097911063
cardano-cli: Network.Socket.connect: <socket: 11>: does not exist (No such file or directory)relay@relay-test3:~/keys$
My foundation knowledge of linux is lacking. I have thought of sockets as ports or a way for processes to communicate, but I’m not sure I understand the specifics of how linux uses, configures, and maintains sockets, or how that implements with Cardano. I’ve read through the Ubuntu pages on sockets and have not made much more sense to me.
I guess my question is, can anyone explain sockets to me in a way that can help me improve my own troubleshooting? I’ve simply copy/pasted the lines from tutorials related to sockets and setting paths, but I’d like to comprehend this better. Thank you in advance, Eazy
