Roon Arc port changed itself!

Had Roon Arc all set up with port forwarding etc. But it stopped working recently. Upon investigation, it seemed the port had changed from 55000 to a random 4xxxx port.

Anyone have any idea why this had changed? It definitely wasn’t me, and nobody else in my family even knows we have Roon (lol).

Any clues anyone?

Do you have UPnP turned on?

UPnP will enable apps and devices to automatically open and close ports to connect with your LAN network. This process also known as port forwarding happens on the router and can permit web traffic to pass through your internal network from an external source. It is better to manually add the Port Forward and disable UPnP.


Thanks Mike, will check.
