I installed Spotify but cannot connect. The signin process hangs and I get "error 112" after a while and mentioning a firewall issue.
What ports should be open for Spotify to connect?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Yes but that's already checked actually.
As I said a few messages before: it's officially blocked by my IT.
Not that my IT doesn't want us to be able to listen to music but they just block those ports because they've judged it was necesary to.

I've been following this thread since the beginning because I was experiencing the same problem at work. I first got code 112 and after trying out diffrent solutions I got code 117. For me spotify works perfectly at home. I am sure the problem for me is that the IT of my company blocked the server, because non of my colleagues is able to log in to spotify at work. For everyone in this thread that who appears to have the same problem, I suggest advising the IT of your company, and if that is cerainly not the problem you might consider starting a new thread cause for my case I'm not going to find any answers in this one.

Great... but how to convince my IT to open these ports? We're not in a dictatorial company so they don't mind we're listening to music here but I guess they did it for safety purpose or whatever else quirky stuffs.
I'm living in Germany and I also know the official authority regulating the royalties are very feared (it's called GEMA), I think you should really mention on your German website that spotify is legal and approved by GEMA authorities.

Hey so I discovered my solution to this issue almost by accident! I had basicly given up on spotify after this (thread) message initaly poped up, its been a few weeks since I last used the desktop software after uninstalling due to the proxy 112 error. I tried everything in this post as well as many others and did a clean instal multiple times with no different results, just sadness. But then one day after giving up on it, I stumbled onto a spotify playlist embeded into a website, you know the ones that ask you if you have spotify if you click them (At this point i had the app uninstalled for a few weeks). Just for the hell of it i clicked it and it launched an in browser spotify instaltion routine which when completed opened and actualy launched the app with my profile signed in. No more error! I was pretty suprised and its been a few days now with no issues! I hope this could help the hopeless like mysef!
PS: A strange thing to note is using this instalation method it made me go through the EULA popup again, dunno why.
