KDE Connect on Leap 15

Does anyone know how to enable KDE Connect on Leap 15?

On 42.3 I would go to YaST > Firewall > Demilitarized Zone > KDE Connect > allow > OK

Leap 15 doesn’t show that option when selecting the firewall.

afaik the firewall was changed 42.3 used susefirewall 15.0 uses firewalld
check the firewalld man pages about how to enable a service (check the kdeconnect docs to see it’s service name) or open ports 1714-1764
or try

sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --permanent --add-port=1714-1764/tcp
sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --permanent --add-port=1714-1764/udp
sudo systemctl restart firewalld.service

Thanks so much, I_A !
It works now.

Yes … also works for me, in a fashion … in as much pairing is fine and tranx from PC to phone works … however, when trying to TRNX from phone to PC i get the uninformative message

KDE Connect
Failed to send file to [xxxx@host]

I cannot determine if it is the phone or the pc/firewall etc. Any ideas??
