I was trying to connect eztz-cli to my locally running containerized (via docker) tezos node. These are the steps I followed:
- Start the node with rpc enabled by running
./alphanet.sh start --rpc-port 6160
- Set the provider by running
eztz provider localhost:6160
After this, when I run commands like
eztz balance *some account address here* or
eztz freeAccount main account1, it returns
Error: Error: Protocol not supported.
I have tried digging into the source code of eztz-cli and eztz, but couldn't find the root cause. Any help is appreciated.
./mainnet.sh. tezos.gitlab.io/alphanet/introduction/… contains information about how this process takes place.
