My Question or Issue
I repeatedly get the firewall error message and I've run every fix suggested on this community. It simply refuses to work. It works perfectly on my Android phone however.
Hey there folks,
Thanks for reporting this here in the Community!

Hi there, I am experiencing an issue shown in the subject and the picture below:
This isn't the only thing I have a problem with: Google ad pages won't work for me either and I believe that it's one error causing these problems. If anybody knows how to even get Spotify to work, help would be appreciated
Thanks in advance: Krys
Spotify (Free) worked on Windows 10 v1909.
I executed "Reset To Factory" to have just a clean instance of Windows 10 v1909 with all Windows Updates. & after, installed only 4 programs: Avira AV, Netflix, Spotify, & VLC.
Now, 'Spotify Client' refuses to login & asks me to check Firewall or Proxy Settings (Error Code 30).
1. I tried to disable Windows Firewall,
2. I tried to update Proxy Settings to: No Proxy.
Hey are you also having trouble opening google ad pages by any chance or is it only an error with Spotify?
J'ai le même problème "code erreur 30" Lors de la connexion et j'ai aucun problème avec Google pour ma part, je pense donc que c'est un problème de Spotify. Ça m'enerve 😞
Hi all! ( @Bankerr @Kryzeg @Jojo40 @nnezi )
Welcome to the Spotify Community! In this case I'd recommend doing a complete Clean Reinstall you can do this by following all in the instructions in this article over on the Community here!
Let me know how it goes!
I have this same problem as well. Doing a clean reinstall doesn't work for me either.
I’ve had some updates behind the scenes, could you guys give this ago and let me know what happens!
Open Notepad as an administrator (right-click - Open as Administrator)
go to File - Open and navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
Choose "All Files" instead of "Text Documents" next to the File Name box. You'll see a handful of files. Pick hosts and click on Open
When the file is open, you will see a block of text with # in front of each line and might see entries like 0.0.0.0 website.com127.0.0.1 website2.com
Check for any entries with Spotify in the address. Examples may look like: 0.0.0.0 weblb-wg.gslb.spotify.com0.0.0.0
If you do find any lines with Spotify, please remove them
Save your changes and restart Spotify
Removing spotify from my host files worked, my question is, how the heck did the entry get put in there in the first place. i know i dont ever poke around in my hosts file.
