Configure your firewall to work with Sonos

This article will describe how to properly configure your computer’s firewall software for use with Sonos. An unconfigured firewall can cause issues with your Sonos speakers, your music library, or other features like registration or system updates.

Change your firewall settings

Choose your firewall from the list below to see specific configuration steps.

If your firewall isn’t listed, make these adjustments in your firewall settings and then restart the Sonos application. For assistance finding these options, contact the firewall manufacturer.
