Error 112 on Windows 10 Desktop and nothing plays from Web Player






Dell Computer

Operating System

Windows 10


My Question or Issue


All of a sudden this morning, the App switched to Offline Mode and stopped playing. I closed the App and opened it back up and was unable to log back in to the App. I received the message: "A firewall may be blocking Spotify. Please update you firewall to allow Spotify. Additionally you could try changing the currently used proxy settings. (Error code: 112)


I opened the web player and am able to log in to my account and see all of the channels that I have listened to but when I click on the play button, nothing happens.  


I can connect my iPhone to the same network via WiFi and it works just fine.


Please let me know what I need to do to fix this issue.
