cont from first question

I get this error upon keying geth attach ipc:\.\pipe\geth.ipc.

Fatal: Unable to attach to remote geth: Timed out waiting for pipe '\\.\pipe\geth.ipc' to come available

what exactly is this error and what should I do to attach geth?


I think, you are giving the wrong ipc path, Check for this message on your log - IPC endpoint opened: to know the exact path at which IPC has been opened.

Try specifying the port of your choice by typing

geth attach http://localhost:8547

This solution worked on Win10 machine.
