KDE connect - trouble connecting WIndows PC and Android

I am running Windows 11 on my PC
Android runs Graphene OS

used trouble shooting guide and opened the port range 1714-1764 for UDP and TCP in Windows firewall.

Have also tried

  • Connecting via IP address

  • Toggled VPN on and off

  • Reinstalled Android app

None of this worked, though it has worked in the past. . . .
