Would be pleased if someone could get in touch from Suppoty and how do we get credit for down time?

Me too. I have about the same configuration and the same problem.

@Stephen_Gay, a couple of suggestions:

  1. Are your Roon computers running Windows set to Private networking and not Public (under the Windows Settings → Network & Internet tab)?

  2. Do you have Windows firewall exceptions set for all the following: roon.exe, raatserver.exe, and roonappliance.exe?

Checked both - changed to public networking. Still will not connect.

@Stephen_Gay, you may have misinterpreted my first suggestion. The Windows Network Settings must be set to Private for Roon to work on your home network.

Hello Robert.

The windows network settings were set to private. I could connect fine until the latest upgrade.


As a troubleshooting step Roon recommend downloading Roon from their website and reinstalling installing Roon (over the top of the existing installation.

I have uninstalled/reinstalled on my main core and my ipad and phone but still thecsame problem. Not able to speak to someone in support directly is VERY frustrating. I seem to have no alternative but to cancel my subscription.

Is the Roon Server actually running on your Windows 10 PC?

Yes. That’s correct.

Hello @Stephen_Gay
Thanks for reporting!
Since your RoonServer has been offline for the last 1 day, I can`t get the server logs and figure out the problem.
Could you please start the RoonServer and let me know?


Hello @andrew.v

I have now switched the server on.

Thanks very much for your help.

@Stephen_Gay, is Roon working for you now?

No. Still not working. My ipad or android phonr cannot connect to ther server.

Does your HP Pavilion Roon Server computer work if Roon is used to play music only on this PC?


Roon plays music on the PC.
