Hi to the community Smile

So yet another Kodi user having issues connecting the Kore remote app. I've followed the guide as presented in the FAQ section, with no success. Browsing on these forums I've tried as always to ping my device. With firewall on, I cannot ping my computer ip address. I can ping the computer when firewall in off. I dont know how to resolve this part of the connection issue.
Strangely I cannot ping nor open the Kodi web server from a remote phone or tablet, regardless of whether firewall is on or off on the Kodi PC. I can open the web server on the host Kodi PC. Herein I think lies the origin of my Kore/Kodi connection issues - any help on what specifically is the problem would be appreciated.

So far ive tried opening ports 8080 and 9090 within firewall, as well as changing to a different port, to no avail. Kodi app also is unblocked on public and private networks. On my android phone, the Fing app can see my host Kodi PC though reports it is Unreachable. I'm kind of lost now tbh...

I dont have access to the router (in roomates room which he locked and is on holiday) so i hope its a fixable issue with the PC configuration and not a router issue because then i dont have access to fix that.

PC is running Windows 10 Home, Kodi Version 17.3, Running in built windows defender anti-virus, no third part firewalls or antivirus

cheers in advance
That really sounds like a network issue, which is difficult to analyse at least for me. You seem to have checked all the obvious things (firewall blocking ports, changing ports, tweaking the public/private confusion on windows), what might be left is mess up with the router. You usually don't need physical access to a access the management page, so you could try that.
