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

There should be an option in Roon to turn off Roon ARC. With the majority of consumer routers having UPnP enabled by default, leaving unecessary ports open poses a potential security risk. Having this possibility would not only enhance user control over network configurations but also contribute to a more secure and resilient environment, aligning with best practices in safeguarding against potential cyber threats.


Just set the port for ARC to 0 to achieve that.
