Description Of Issue

iPad remote has worked great until today. I have followed the previous thread

Remote works with firewall disabled, not when it is enabled.
Roon and RAATServer are allowed “all connections” in the Application Rules

Hi @Troy_Gorrell,

Can you please give these instructions a try?

I would make sure to add both Roon.exe and RAATServer.exe, these can be found in your Database Location/Application folder path.

See above. Roon and RAATServer are already listed in the application exceptions.

Hi @Troy_Gorrell,

It looks like there’s a thread on the AVG forums about this issue:

I would try the latest suggestions:

Wanted to leave trace of it being resolved and also for my future reference:

  • On Enhanced Firewall, set “for programs with no defined rules” button set to “allow”
  • List of network profiles: Red 2 set to “private”

The “no defined rules”=allow was already set.

Changing my home network to “private” seems to have fixed it
