Description of Issue -

What is the exact port forwarding error message you see in the Roon Settings → ARC tab?

I have followed all of the threads for IpV4/IpV6, but nothing seems to work to get the port forwarding to work.

{
“connectivity”: {“status”:“NetworkError”,“status_code”:502,“error”:“error: Error: connect ECONNREFUSED 95.aaa.bbb.ccc:55002, response code: undefined, body: undefined”},
“external_ip”: {“actual_external_ip”:“95.aaa.bbb.ccc”,“router_external_ip”:“null”},
“status”: “status”: MultipleNatFound
,
“natpmp_autoconfig”: {“status”:“NotFound”},
“upnp_autoconfig”: {“server_ip”:“192.168.178.1”,“found_upnp”:true}
}

Hi Richard,

If you only have 1 router in your system and getting “MultipleNatFound”, then that is an indicator that your ISP has you on CGNAT service. I would suggest calling them and asking if you can get a direct IP and not be on CGNAT service.

Hi @Richard_Rodell,

Depending on your geographic location, you may have to pursue workarounds to Vodafone’s carrier-grade NAT (as @Rugby mentioned) until Roon’s internal efforts to implement IPv6 compatibility for ARC bear fruit.

Many Vodafone user’s have successfully configured ARC, either through contacting Vodafone support, tweaking/replacing their Fritz!Box and settings, or setting up a VPN. I recommend you check this thread out: Vodafone Germany w/ ISP-Supplied Modem/Router (Fritz!Box or Touchstone): Ongoing Discussion

Thank you for your patience.
