when I scan ports I disconnect, wondering why

SinisterMachineSinisterMachine Member Posts: 1
so I'm using one galaxy s8+ as a hotspot with pdanet+ and any device I try to scan ports with on it via the pdanet connection disconnects from the hotspot. I see 2 ports open before the disconnect. 2nd one is 8000. All of the devices but the hotspot device do have Android q and are samsung. Ive never had an issue quite like this so I'm unsure what may be behind it. Is it android q? Is it the pda net app and the VPN connection on the connected devices? Maybe something else? What can I do to fix it? It has me curious because the scan starts and is working but something kicks me from the connection because of it.

    Hi @SinisterMachine welcome to the community and thanks for asking your question.
    I don't know if that was a means of testing by the Fing team.  Maybe @Robin can help us, initiate a test in their lab to see if we receive the same result as you?
    I can't imagine a reason that it would drop your network connection doing a port scan.
