Description Of Issue

Would like to connect the core to the bridge using ethernet cable but the PC is not recognized by the Linux core server… How can I get the Linux core server to recognize the bridge over ethernet cable direct connection?

Hello @Kim_Coffey,

I am not sure what you mean by direct ethernet cable between the Core and the Bridge unless you have a virtual router running on the Core. A direct Ethernet connection between them wouldn’t be just plug and play. I would suggest connecting the Bridge via Wifi or via Ethernet to the router or a network switch.

What kind of laptop are you using for the bridge, is it Windows or OSX? Can you provide a screenshot of your Roon Settings -> Audio Tab? Have you made sure to add both Roon.exe and RAATServer.exe as exceptions to your laptop’s OS firewall and also to any Antivirus Firewalls you may have?

You can locate Roon.exe and RAATServer.exe by navigating to the Database Location/Application folder, and you can add them to Windows Firewall by using these instructions or OSX firewall by using these instructions.

Please let me know if that helps.
