I have a
web3.py program running and everything was seemingly working. I was connecting to my local server via the automatic connection offered in
I am now getting the following error:
requests.exceptions.ReadTimeout: HTTPConnectionPool(host='localhost', port=8545): Read timed out. (read timeout=10)
This only happens when I am trying to send a transaction. I can read the nonce from the server, but when I attempt to send a transaction with
web3.py, I get this timeout.
I have seen this comment 20 days ago which offers a potential solution. My problem here is that I do not know if it is possible to change the
HTTPProvider timeout when automatically connecting. Is this a solution? If so, how can you change the timeout when auto-connecting to the node?
