Kdeconnec TCP

Hi what exactly are kdeconnec on port :1716. Everytime I kill it it shows again after some time.
kdeconnec 1945 user 12u IPv6 39448 0t0 TCP *:1716 (LISTEN)

Hi. It is a normal process when using the KDE desktop, or have KDE Connect installed.

Can I disable it somehow, so it does not start from startup?

I don’t know, I don’t use Plasma. If I don’t know the exact name of a service I want to disable/enable/restart I use the application called Stacer.

sudo apt install stacer

After Googling, it looks like others have the same question. It may be a bug to have this network service running all the time as part of the core Plasma desktop environment. Perhaps someone else can comment further.
