Describe the issue

I just created a NUC ROCK server. I can see it on the network. My Roon remote (iOS) cannot. I restarted the ROCK and briefly saw the ROCK server in ROON, but then it went back to searching. It never actually connects. I’ve reinstalled the Roon software on my phone. I’ve confirmed they are on the same subnet. I have a single ATT router. I connected the ROCK directly to the router via ethernet. I am at a loss. Help!

Describe your network setup

Att optical router BWG320-505. Copper network cable to ROCK. WiFi to iPhone

Do you see a message something like this on your iPhone?

(this is from a Roon client running on a PC, but I think you could be seeing something similar)

If so, touch the “Select a different Roon Server” link to see if that will show the new ROCK/NUC…

This is what I see.

I can reach the rock when I configure at the bottom.

Try touching the “Help” link and then entering the actual IP address of the ROCK/NUC. If that doesn’t work, try entering 255.255.255.255 as the address. This is the multicast address, which is used by Roon for device discovery.

Thanks. I tried both. Gave it 5 minutes. No change, still searching.

OK, so what, precisely, are the IP addresses of your ROCK/NUC and your iOS device?

iPhone: 192.168.1.168
ROCK: 192.168.1.130
I cut and pasted them so as not to make mistake.

Hi @scott_flint,

Can you access the webUI of the ROCK?

Here’s more info:

Share a screenshot if possible. Thank you!

I have left the ROCK on for the last few days and it finally connected. Thanks for taking a look at it.
