Communication Error (Resolved) - Octopi Communication Error

I recently turned on my printer after a 2 week absence from printing.  I am a newer 3D printer, so I was curious and had been going through the Prusa MK3s+ menus to see what was there.

Then I decided to print an item using Octopi.  But, I couldn't get my printer to connect.  I was getting timeout errors from Octopi.  I checked/changed USB cable, connections, even swapped out the Raspberry Pi 4B that Octoprint was running on. This did not help.

I DDG'd for a couple of hours to find anything that might help.

Then I found How to fix OctoPrint keeps running into communication errors and timeouts

Apparently in my going through the menus I accidentally toggled Settings>RPi port to .  It needs to be if you haven't installed the RPi zero W board on EINSY.

This solved my problem immediately.

p.s. After I discovered the above solution I found the Octoprint Configuration and Install in the Prusa Knowledgebase telling me the same thing.
