I am trying to follow the beginners guide to setting up a node and I have run into an error. I am at the point of creating the protocol.json file using the cardano-cli command. It is from the “Create a simple transaction” section. When I enter the command:
cardano-cli shelley query protocol-parameters
I get the error message:
cardano-cli: Network.Socket.connect: <socket: 11>: does not exist (Connection refused)
Where do I go from here?
