Fing App goes AWOL on MacOS Catalina

By AWOL, I mean that the app still runs, but any Fing operation (even a simple ping) is met with a blank screen. It is as if the App and fingbox are no longer talking.
So I exit the Fing App and restart it - same result. So some other Fing component (OS driver?) has died. The only way I can get Fing App functionally back is to reboot MacOS entirely. So I know it's not the Fingbox... something with state on which the Fing App relies has died, and it only gets reset when the OS reloads!!!

Any suggestions? It's a real pain rebooting my Macbook every time...

    Hey @Codfish...  What version of the desktop are you using? The latest is 2.1.0 which is probably the first thing Fing will ask when they see this..  

    @Robin or @Ciaran, could you help with this?

    Hi @Codfish
    First, to update, Fing desktop is not integrated with Fingbox so Fingbox does not have any effect on Fing desktop. Also, What O.S are you using on MacBook? Are you running any firewall or antivirus? What all features are you using when you get the blank screen?

    OS is 10.15.6. I am running Sophos, but disabled it to test. Any feature I try results in no operation. Solution is to reboot at which point the Fing app will work fine.... until it stops working.  I will add a screenshot when it dies next. I'm also seeing the following (which may be unrelated):

    There appears to be a problem with MacOs 10.15.6 after this update IMO.

    Hi @Codfish
    Can you check under Activity Monitor if multiple Fing helpers are running? And if there are multiple Fing helpers then force quit them and then try to use Fing desktop.
    If the issue persists, then Can you please follow these commands on the terminal and let me know of the result? 
    • Command 1: /usr/bin/pgrep fingagent 

    • Command 2: sudo lsof -nP -iTCP:48080 -sTCP:LISTEN 

     
    On running the 2nd command, it will ask for a password and you need to enter the login password of your MacBook
