I think I should re-phrase that. I'm not on that machine at present, but IIRC the
mouse pointer moves, but clicks after the first get no reponse for some time.
OK, I see the problem you are having. It seems to be a bug with the GUI. To get around
it do the following....
1. Make the change to "Permanent" to add port 1900 as TCP.
2. Assuming you are using the "Public" zone then edit
/etc/firewalld/zones/public.xml and change tcp to udp
3. Then do "systemctl restart firewalld.service"
Give that a try and see if it works for you.
If you can't laugh at yourself, others will gladly oblige.
