KDE Connect - file transfer

KDE Connect between my PC and Pixel XL does everything it should … except transfer FROM PC to phone!!!

I have spent hours trying to find out why not. I can ping, send SMS, transfer files from phone to PC … but i cannot transfer to the phone … either by using the KDE Connect “Share File” or by manually transferring when invoking the “browse this device” functionality in the KDE Connect on the PC.

It surely is a permissions thing on the phone … however i cannot see where or how. I have given all permissions i can via the app on the phone … and all appears normal.

PS: I have no issue transferring both ways by connecting the phone and the PC via USB!!

I have used KDE Connect in the past without issue!

It must be something simple but i have hit a brick wall!!

Any ideas??
