I'm trying to set up a new local node for Jakartanet using the docker setup, as I've done in the past for previous testnets. Unfortunately, no matter how I try to setup the node, it seems to fail to connect to it with the following error

./jakartanet.sh head
  Failed to acquire the protocol version from the node
  Rpc request failed:
     - meth: GET
     - uri: http://node:8732/chains/main/blocks/head/protocols
     - error: Unable to connect to the node: "Unix.Unix_error(Unix.ECONNREFUSED, "connect", "")"

  Rpc request failed:
     - meth: GET
     - uri: http://node:8732/chains/main/blocks/head/header
     - error: Unable to connect to the node: "Unix.Unix_error(Unix.ECONNREFUSED, "connect", "")"

I've tried to run the node using just ./jakartanet.sh node start, or using ./jakartanet.sh node start --rpc-port 8732 --rpc-addr --allow-all-rpc, and most combinations of only some of the parameters. When I'm trying to curl directly it also refused to connect

curl http://localhost:8732/version
curl: (56) Recv failure: Connection reset by peer

I'm currently not using a snapshot, but earlier I tried to do the same with a snapshot and had similar issues. Does anyone have any idea what I might be doing wrong?
