I have read this question but it didn't solve my problem.
I'm trying to connect the Remix IDE to a running node on my computer. The node is running without issues, it's connected to the Rinkeby network and to a Dapp I'm creating. For completeness, I'm starting the node with
geth --networkid=4 --datadir=$HOME/.rinkeby --verbosity 0 --syncmode=light --bootnodes=enode://email@example.com:30303?discport=30304 --rpc --rpccorsdomain "https://remix.ethereum.org" --rpcapi=eth,web3,net,personal,ssh,db,debug console
However, when I do Contract > Environment > Web3 provider > 127.0.0.1:8545 (or localhost:8545 have tried both) the accounts that appear are not the same as the ones I get on my running geth console by typing
eth.accounts. I don't know where the accounts that show up in Remix after connecting to
127.0.0.1:8545 are coming from actually.
