Trying to connect Full Node RPC

I am trying to connect to Full Node via RPC following this instruction:

Operating system Windows 10.
Curl version 7.87.0

On the command line I enter:
curl --insecure --cert C:\private_full_node.crt --key C:\private_full_node.key -d ‘{}’ -H “Content-Type: application/json” -X POST https://localhost:8555/get_blockchain_state | python -m json.tool

I get this response:

Why isn’t Full Node answering me?

I think the problem is that on Windows you need to use gitbash. This assumes you are pointing to the correct certificate and key, which should be

If you want to use curl, I suggest you install gitbash (Git - Downloading Package) and try again.

Alternatively, you can directly access the RPCs from powershell with the chia rpc command, for example:
chia rpc full_node get_blockchain_state
