Description of Issue

Mac can’t find Core (ROCK) in Roon software. The Rock is visible in the network devices within finder window.

Jesse, in your router’s administration page do you see the ROCK and the Mac Client? Are they sharing similar IP addresses? Are the firewall permissions set to allow Roon on your Mac?

It appears there was some apple security update that wasn’t automatically going through. I resolved by installing the update and completely clearing the prior Roon installation from the laptop and reinstalling. All working now.
