it appears that it is jic flare . and the most common problem with this fitting is the female side or the fitting on the hose side had an o-ring crimped behind the nut to allow the nut to turn to tighten without leakage behind fitting.
if the o-ring dry s up it will leak . only proper way to fix it is to take entire hose off and have a new end crimped on or have a new hose made all together.
I personally DO NOT like non wire reinforced hose which you have . I would replace it with two wire hydraulic hose .
I have my own hyd. hose crimper,hose and ends if you need anything let me know.
