Port already in use


Zorin-connect use to work fine at first, then I started getting the notification message of "Zorin Connect: Port already in use, click for help troubleshooting"

I can open the app but my devices are not visible.


It keeps scanning the devices without actually finding anything.

I have an android phone with the app installed and it works fine on other laptops.


You can verify if a port is in use in terminal with: sudo lsof -i -P -n | grep LISTEN

Have you completely killed the Zorin-Connect application and UFW, then re-initialized them?

And please make sure you haven't installed kdeconnect and gnome connect too.
This happened to me a few days ago.

OP is on Core, so should be using Zorin Connect.
