Testnet - cardano-cli: Network.Socket.connect: <socket: 11>: does not exist (No such file or directory)

This is the error that pops up. I even re-installed it and the same message pops up around the node.socket.

Here are some of the things I checked… any other suggestions of what’s missing or a script to run?

  1. I have looked into the Cardano-node run using my personal IP and just

Here is my script:
cardano-node run
–topology testnet-topology.json
–database-path db
–socket-path db/node.socket
–port 3001
–config testnet-config.json

  1. Exporting the node.socket path properly
    export CARDANO_NODE_SOCKET_PATH=~/home/princess/relay/db/node.socket

  2. node.socket file
    It exists and I pwd’d to confirm it’s location

  3. cardano-cli
    cardano-cli query utxo
    –address $(cat payment.addr)
    –testnet-magic 1097911063

Any suggestions why this error is still coming up?
I followed the Cardano-foundation.git course exactly


Has the node been started?
