Could we get clarification on what ports are used for the source and destination from configure your firewall page?
Hi,I’m trying to setup a network firewall with multiple VLANs. I found the page telling us which ports that we need to open up for sonos to work with a firewall in place. Currently the page only tells us what port and protocol (TCP / UDP) that sonos uses.I would like to know the source and destination for the firewall rules. Could we get more clarification in a format that also tells us the reasoning, source, destination, port, and protocol? Possible example below:Music Services Source: Sonos Device Destination: Internet Port 80 and 443 Protocol: TCP Sonos App Control Source: Client (iOS, Android, Mac, etc...) Destination: Sonos Device Port: xxx Protocol: UDP Casting Music: Source: Sonos Device Destination: Client (iOS, Android, Mac, etc...) Port: 30000-65,535 Protocol: TCP Reference to the page that lists all the ports that sonos uses:https://support.sonos.com/s/article/688?language=en_US
I have been a long time user of Sonos S1 products -- Connect. After our move SWMBO demanded that wires be eliminated from the new home. So I purchased a Sonos One Gen 2, knowing that I would either need to downgrade it to work on S1 or I’d have to set up a separate Sonos system. I won’t go into the headaches and failure to connect using S1. I decided to go with a clean installation with the S2 model in hopes that this would work. In preparation I (a) unplugged the three Connect devices, (b) removed the S1 controller from the iPhone, (c) logged into my Unifi wifi access points to convert them all to 2.4 ghz signal only, (d) powered down the entire system so that access points, router and modem were all shut down and hopefully clean, (e) downloaded S2 controller and (e) rebooted the entire mess. S2 controller finds and configures the Sonos One Gen 2, but will not connect to my network with wifi. Yes, I tried the password several times, including copying it from the password manage
Hi there, My Sonos play 5 gen 1 is making a strange clicking noise after a while the power cord is plugged in. I already opened it up and changed the caps in line which I marked on the picture. I also changed the MOSFET m054 which was blown. Unfortunately the clicking sound came back after a while.I would really appreciate any help from this forum.
OK, so I just installed an Ubiquity Unifi network in my home and am blocking traffic to Russia, China and various other places/apps. Today I noticed my Sonos Boost was trying to connect to 188.8.131.52 which is in Russia. Obviously it could not connect but concerned that it is doing this.Anybody know why my boost would need to reach out to Russia?? Not very comfortable with the fact that it is attempting to communicate there.fyi I live in the US which is why I ask.IP lookup came up with this info: _____________________________Decimal:1385080850Hostname:184.108.40.206ASN:3216ISP:PJSC VimpelcomServices:None detectedAssignment:Likely Static IPCountry:Russian FederationState/Region:MoskvaCity:Moscow_____________________________Thank you in advance,Jeff
I have submitted diagnostics 288056268I can no longer access my iTunes library or shared music folders currently stored on my Mac. Both my Play 1 speakers and the Mac controller are version 13.4.1 - all have been updated today to see if that was the issue. Firewall is set up correctly and it makes no difference whether the firewall is on or off. I tried to update the shared folder but received a 1002 error message. The mac controller has now been updating the music library for over an hour to no avail. Thanks in advance for your help!
Hello everyone.I’m desesperate. I have a switch CORE ms250 (support multicast (IGMP and multicast routing).SONOS device is on VLAN 13I have different devices on VLAN 14, for this example I have mi laptop with SONOS app and wired connected on one port of the MS250 on VLAN 14. I have enable multicast routing on SVI 13 and SVI 14, and setup the RP (I tested many configuration about the RP, sometimes for VLAN 13 or VLAN 14 but doesn’t work).Unfortunely my SONOS app on VLAN 14 doesn’t detect the SONOS device on vlan13 with all features that Meraki recommends.I have call Meraki TAC and I don’t have any answer about this behavior.Is there anybody that can HELP ME to know the correct configuration to enable communication between SONOS and my device from different VLANS?
Does anyone know what’s the firing angle of the drivers that produce the virtual surrounds in the Arc? (the second and the one before the last one). I can’t get them to impact on the rear wall, so I’m suspecting the room might be too big, making them to impact on the side walls. If there’s a chart for this, it would really come in handy.Thanks for any input!
Hi! I am interested in buying a Sonos Beam 2 abroad in Australia, as it has much better pricing than what's available locally where I am based. But of course the challenge will be getting it home on the plane. Ideally would handcarry this in it's packaging, but I think it's a little too long for carryon dimensions both boxed or unboxed. I think it should be able to fit in checked baggage for sure unboxed, but of course that eats up a lot of space. Has anyone actually tried transporting a Sonos Beam via plane before?
Hello all, I’m extremely frustrated with SONOS customer support. I purchased a move, saved up and purchased a second one to use together. I mistakingly assumed or missed in the small print that these portable speakers can not pair via bluetooth. When I explained this to a customer service agent she was kind and understanding, she set me up with a return and said there will be no problem returning the second move that was purchased a few months previously, that it would just require some additional paperwork because it’s just over 45 days.I moved on and accepted that I would have to use another product so I went ahead and ordered replacements after being told a return wouldn’t be a problem. So I waited, followed up, waited, followed up and eventually got a reply that my return request was denied because I was just over the time limit. If this was the case I don’t understand why I was told I would be able to return the second unit, or why a request was even made given that the represent
I’ve been listening to channel 793 Court TV on Sirius through Sonos and today it says channel is no longer available. On their channel lineup it goes from 792 to 794. I know this is a Sirius issue but their customer service is awful. Does anyone know what is going on please? Thank you.
bonjour à tous ,je suis nouveau dans le monde sonos, utilisateur deezer depuis 13 ans,j’ai commencé par une sonos roam, histoire de tester avant d’équiper ma maison entière ( 10 one SL )je viens juste d’installer l’appli sonos, je suis surpris que l’on ne puisse pas ajouter un titre Deezer à l’une des mes nombreuses playlist existantes, j’ai seulement la possibilité d’ajouter un titre à “mes coups de cœurs “j’ai fait le meme constat sur Android auto il y a 4 ans, mais la je peux comprendre que c’est peut être pour des raisons de sécurité routière ..est ce une volonté de sonos pour encourager les utilisateur à basculer en doublon ces playlist Deezer, Spotify ou Amazon music sur l’environnement sonos ?est ce une politique de Deezer envers sonosen tout cas je trouve ça vraiment inconfortable, on se retrouve avec une playlist “coup de cœur “ qui sert de “fourre-tout” qu’il faut redispatcher dans un deuxième temps dans les différentes playlist Deezer .dans l’attente d’un retour éclairé su
Has anyone had a Roam Speaker emit a loud and disturbing sound that couldn’t be stopped unless the speaker is powered down? It sounded like a giant amplified cicada was hovering above me. Support had me power down and then up again. It’s again playing as designed. I’m told if it happens again, they will replace. It was a very unpleasant experience.

tl;dr - are you able to play from Amazon Music Unlimited to Sonos via connected devices or only via AirPlay or Bluetooth?I just treated myself to a pair of Era 100s (paired as stereo “Office”) and down the rabbit hole of hi-res audio streaming services, starting with Amazon Music Unlimited (Individual Plan).I prefer to browse and play through the streaming app, especially with Amazon’s additional labels (Atmos, HD, Ultra HD, etc.). I’m unable to play from the Amazon Music app to Sonos.I’m able to do this on Spotify. I’d stream through “another device on this network” (instead of “AirPlay or Bluetooth”) without any issue:When I try to do that through Amazon, it connects to Office but won’t go beyond this screen and music won’t play:After that, if I try to play Amazon through the Sonos App, I get a notification about device limits: So, I can play from Spotify to Sonos via network devices, but unable to from Amazon to Sonos via network. I can play from Amazon to Sonos with AirPlay but sou

Hello guys, I am new to the Sonos systemIf I use the Spotify App (On Desktop), will it recognize the Speaker group I set up from Sonos and play music to that group?At my work site, they want to have a main operator and a backup person (so that when the main operator is busy, this person can play music instead). Can I use one Spotify account to sign in on both Desktops?
