Hi @dolldothouse!

Are you running other developer applications simultaneously? That could also cause similar issues. Apps like MAMP, XAMPP, or Docker for example.

Do you have any antivirus, security, or firewall applications that could be blocking Local?


Following up here to see if you were able to resolve this or if a subsequent update got it working again?
