when i run: ionic cordova run android --device -l, I suddenly get this this error: net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED. Without adding the reload param, it works.
When I create a new app, livereload works.

In my current app, it suddenly stopped working.

Adding the address: ionic cordova run android --device -l --address, it also doesn’t work.

This is my ionic info:


   ionic (Ionic CLI)  : 4.1.0
   Ionic Framework    : ionic-angular 3.9.2
   @ionic/app-scripts : 3.1.11

I disabled the firewall, already. And as I said: With a “fresh” app, it works. So it must be related to to the app.

Many Thanks in advance,

No one here, that can help me with that?`
The problem is still there. Everything is up to date. After a few codechanges, I still get the error: ‘ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED’ . It happens in the emulator and on a real device with remote debugging. I tried all the suggested solutions, that I found in the web and in this forum,l like re-sinatlling the webview, remove and add platforms, etc…

Please ionic team, habe a look at this. Such errors consume a lot of time and it’s very annoying, that it still happens after x updates…

Did you ever get this working?

Disable live deploy and it works.
