I am a newbie, I am angry and let me vent.
Why the heck are there two firewalls on my kde neon installation and that too without informing me? Most probably an oversight.
There is the
The two somehow managed to alternatively block the required ports for my devices to discover each other.
plasma-firewall seems to be the main culprit since I had disabled ufw numerous times before from the terminal in hopes to make devices connect.
Never checked in the settings or I would have seen that some firewall in there (plasma-firewall) shows that its very much active.
I had set rules to allow required ports to be open in the plasma firewall too but...didn't work.
Here if you check in settings you have another firewall which is the plasma one. Blast it.
Ting!!! Kde devices just saw each other for the first time.
Is it just me who somehow installed 2 firewalls? I am sorry to the devs if I am an unique case but if I'm not....
then I'm just disappointed. If you are adding a firewall of your own maybe remove the previous one? or was it needed? I vent cause I do not know.
Removing either one of those and configuring the other one to open the required ports will probably do the job. I'm not gonna test it though, devices did not discover each other even when plasma-firewall had set rules to open the ports to anywhere. Unfortunately I did not take screenshots.

Plasma firewall is a gui end for either ufw or firewalld. It's not a standalone firewall as such. You could compare it to gufw in gnome and other gtk's, which, by the looks of your terminal output was installed as well.
