I have just finished syncing to the testnet, but I'm having trouble running geth console on it.
Storing the blockchain on an external usb drive, this is the command I used to start geth on the testnet
$ geth --testnet --datadir /media/removable/Lexar/ethereum/ --ipcpath ~/.ethereum/geth.ipc
and attempting to attach to the network with geth console
geth --testnet attach http://127.0.0.1:8545
gave me this error:
I read this answer here, but even with the
--ipcpath flag as suggested, it doesn't work.
Please advise. Any help would be appreciated.
