Network Details (Including networking gear model/manufacturer and if on WiFi/Ethernet)*

Description Of Issue
Both iOS and Android remotes connected via WiFi have stopped seeing the Roon Core. Previously worked.

I do think the core may have had a Microsoft released update prior to the remote failure. I’ve tried finding the core using its IP address. No luck…

Could the Windows update have reset Windows firewall settings? That’s been known to make Windows-based cores to “hide.”


Hi @Timothy_Macklin,

Since you are using a Windows PC, I would verify that both Roon.exe and RAATServer.exe have been added as exceptions to your Windows firewall.

You can use these instructions to add the exceptions and the executables themselves would be located in your Database Location/Application folder path.

I would also add these exceptions to any Antivirus or other Firewall blocking applications you may have and ensure that you connected to your network via a Private network, not a Public one, see this guide for more information.
