I have been working on trying to run a geth node on my home server (FreeBSD jail on a freenas) and setting up my laptop geth to attach to the rpc to save space on my laptop. I have confirmed that the geth node on the server works and I can connect locally on the jail through
geth attach http://localhost:8545. However, when I try to connect to the node through my windows laptop using
geth.exe attach http://XXX:8545 I get the error:
Has anyone tried something similar or know why this may be happening?
