When the scaffolding for both client and server is set up for SignalR. The first thing on the client side is to attempt to connect to the Hub.
Our first attempt to connect to the server hub.
//But chrome showed this Request URL: https://localhost:8081/Hub/ClientStatus/negotiate Response: XHR negotiate (failed) ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED xhr
The root cause of this days long error was that you cannot use the old signalr client libraries found in ASP.NET.
// do not use this one in a .net core application! npm i @asp.net/signalr // Use this one. npm i @microsoft/signalr
Make sure your server is up an running. If negotiation attempts show red, nobody is responding!
JWP2020 npm i @microsoft/signalr
