I have a Core system in my mastering studio upstairs, connected to a NAS and it works great. I have a computer in the basement studio running as a Roon remote that can find the upstairs Core and upstairs connected audio, but doesn’t show the local downstairs audio interface. (Both upstairs and downstairs have Focusrite converters).
I can connect to both computers from each other, and even run remote desktop at good speed.
Upstairs and downstairs are connected via a Buffalo WiFi to ethernet port. They both have smooth internet access.
Hi Steve, on your Roon Remote PC try this:
In Settings --> Audio --> [Focusrite] --> Settings, check the Private Zone is unchecked.
The challenge is there is no local [Focusrite] option. The one connected to the core does not have “Private Zone” checked…
This is what the top of the audio settings page looks like from the remote computer:
From the core devices list, I can see the ‘Focusrite USB Audio’ … so that looks ok (just not enabled).
If you scroll down that list is there another Focusrite listed as being connected to the remote?
I assume not but have to ask.
There is no Remote section; that’s my problem…
Here is the rest of the audio settings page on the remote (scrolled down):
Hey @Arsdivina, it feels like firewall is blocking the RAATServer process. You can try the following:
- Completely turn off Windows Firewall on both machines
- Restart Roon Core and Remote
- Check the Audio tab once more
I’m a bit concerned to turn off my firewalls - is there a specific port or service I could whitelist in my firewalls?
Hi @Arsdivina ----- Thanks for the follow up. If you don’t feel comfortable with disabling your firewalls completely, you will want to make a security exception for “Roon” and “RAATServer”.
OK, I opened up the firewall for Roon and RAAT on both machines. I can see my android tablet now on the remote computer, but not its local audio interface(s).
A bit of progress at least! Thank you…
Hi @Arsdivina ----- Thanks for the follow up and the feedback, progress is always good. Based on your last post I am in need of some clarification.
“I can see my android tablet now on the remote computer, but not its local audio interface(s).”
Are you looking to playback audio via the tablet? If so, I would make sure that “private zone” isn’t engaged on that device .
I just solved this! I had to change my wireless subnets (move the core computer ethernet to the switch that the remote is connected to). Winner. Thanks for your help!
