[SOLVED] Downloading of ipfs://... failed - Trying to connect an http1.x server

SOLUTION

The issue was caused by a server running on my workstation that interfered with IPFS download methods used by RedM.exe. TCP 10001 was in conflict, as it was already bound by another application.

Please update the documentation to include needed ports, or include an Advanced section of the setup to view or reconfigure the ports RedM.exe requires to function.
