Roon ARC and Ubuntu - just need to open new port in firewall

Just updated my core, desktop, etc. to Roon 2.0, and then downloaded Roon ARC to my cell phone. I next opened the desktop application to configure Settings>Roon ARC. Before this connected, I had to open the following firewall port in UFW on Ubuntu box:

sudo ufw allow 40229/tcp comment roonarc

I then cut wifi on my phone and guess what, I’m streaming!

Roon, please add Roon Arc to the Microsoft Store!


Unfortunately, there is no Windows Roon ARC app.

Hopefully the answer is… Yet?

see here:

Note that the port was chosen by Roon, and showed up under Settings>Roon Arc. I imagine it could be custom.
