Thanks all of you for these sound advices.
Attaching the device to a monitor, at boot time appeared the name of the precedent owner. So I guess that it’s probably protected by a password I don’t know.
To answer some questions, yes I was pinging the new IP address and the Rock is connected via Ethernet - not through USB. And “not pingable” is also said on the scanner I use “no route to host”.
I’ll resume searching as soon as the precedent owner has replied to my request.
All the best,
In the pasttime once I had the issue, that my printer did not work on one port of my switch but on another port (of the same switch - NOT router, JUST switch) => reboot the network gear is something which might help (in very rare situations, but why not trying, works fast and costs nothing)
Thanks. But unfortunately rebooting the router doesn’t help. And according to IP Network scanner, 2 active ports : 3483 (slim-devices) and 9000 (cslistener), whereas according to iNet Network scanner: 3389 MS WBT Server (?)
Agreed, as ROCK is locked down it is unlikely to be anything but a network issue or an issue on the PC you are trying to ‘see’ ROCK from. This has been asked before but can you access the ROCK web page on that PC? If so, post it.
What exactly is meant by ‘not seen’?
Thanks for your concern, thanks for your advices. I think the issue is solved now.
What happened is that the past owner had blocked access to the Roon Core from another computer than his own. So I could play music (through Roon, from my NAS…) on this device, but I could not reach the Core from my computer : it was said “not pingable“ on the IP Network Scanners I use, and I could not have access to it from my desktop.
I just attached a monitor, a keyboard and a mouse to the core, and I tried to understand what was happening. Things were complicated by the facts that 1. as a Mac owner, I’m not comfortable with Windows, 2. the precedent owner was German, and I’m not comfortable with this language… But everything’s OK now, thanks a lot once more !
All the best,
