Description of Issue

When I use my PC Roon app and connect to Rhein Roon Core, I can’t see my PC as an audio device.

When I run my PC as Roon core, it works fine.

I’ve uninstalled the app on VitOS and reinstalled a fresh version of Roon.

Please help me resolve this. This used to work flawlessly.

Disable the firewall on your PC and/or the music server temporarily as a test and see if it works. You may have to add permanent firewall exceptions if that test makes your audio devices appear.
