I'm not sure what is the problem is, but I suspect that the call to wallet-balances is failing when factomd is setup with an RPC password. The wallet-balances call does not work when factomd has an RPC password.

This is normal operation. Example is from the testnet:

> factomd -customnet=fct_community_test

>  factom-walletd

> curl -X POST --data-binary '{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "id": 0, "method": "wallet-balances"}' -H 'content-type:text/plain;' http://localhost:8089/v2

returns {"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":0,"result":{"fctaccountbalances":{"ack"...  This is correct.

When factomd is started with an RPC password, the wallet-balances call fails:

> factomd -customnet=fct_community_test -rpcpass pass1 -rpcuser user1

> factom-walletd -factomdpassword pass1 -factomduser user1

> curl -X POST --data-binary '{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "id": 0, "method": "wallet-balances"}' -H 'content-type:text/plain;' http://localhost:8089/v2

returns {"jsonrpc":"2.0","id":0,"error":{"code":-32602,"message":"Invalid params"}}

my guess is that the user strings aren't being set.

not many wallet commands talk to the factomd, but getting the current EC rate I know does:

Editing the wallet can be tricky, as the code for it is held in the FactomProject/factom repo, but compiled in the factom-walletd folder. if you do a glide install on the wallet, but also edit the ~/go/src/ folder, golang should use the non-vendor directory code. goland is a good ide with a debugger.

Hi Brian,
I think you were right on spot for the root cause. After adding the header for basic auth to both calls to factomd the API call was returning correctly. PR: FactomProject/factom#82
