Port forwarding?

Have downloaded, installed Flock. Set up mic, h’phones. ‘Get Ready’ page tests OK

When I join a room, I can see the leader but I only hear half a word at a time. The system chucks me out, back to ‘Get Ready’, after 5 seconds.

Not yet able to connect by ethernet cable. That will come but, for now, it should not prevent me connecting.

This is not a conflict with Bluetooth; Bluetooth is turned off.

I expect it to be a firewall issue. Disabling both firewalls (router and laptop) does not get me in. Can port forwarding help? What port?

Usually this is a firewall issue.

But could also be that you are on Wifi if the connection is not sufficiently stable.
