I am not sure if the following would work for you, but you could give it
a try.

Open notepad, press control O and paste the following path.


Press enter. The configuration file should open. The line you're looking
for is:

port = integer(default=6837)

If you try changing the port number on that line, it may solve your
problem. It may also be worth checking the file for any other references
to the port. That's the only place I can think of where you could make
the changes to not expose your port numbers.

I hope that works for you.

Very best wishes,

you enter your hostname plus the port number as follows.

The numbers are your port number. So if your IP was:,

In the host box, you would enter:

Don't you also have to specify the port in the add-on configuration?
Unless you also change it in the code, it probably won't work. There
should be something in the documentation on how to specify the correct
port on the client side.

Are the correct ports open and accessible? I believe port 6837 needs
to be open.
