Hi @Bharat_Vala,

@Wade_Oram is correct - there’s likely a firewall or third-party security software preventing the Roon GUI component from connecting to the RoonServer install on this machine.

I’d also verify that you haven’t installed RoonServer in a location that might have restricted access, like a password-protected folder location or external drive.
