Description Of Issue

Old version of Roon has been working fine for past 2 years. Update to 1.8 created a failure (blocked by McAfee Firewall) preventing remote access with iPhone. Access permission has been set up in McAfee firewall for both RAATserver and Roon. The remote access will work if I turn the Firewall OFF.

#support - please let us know what protocols (TCP, UDP etc.) Roon uses and through which ports it communicates.

how/where do I find that information?

Hi @stephen_weiner

Application-level exceptions will need to be set up in McAfee. Can you confirm that there are exceptions in place for Roon/RoonServer and RAATServer? Can you share a screenshot of the exceptions?

This question was to Roon Support
