Connection issue TF Quickstart

*This question was migrated from Github Discussions.

Original questions:
Hi there,

I am trying to implement flower and going through the tensorflow quickstart tutorial. And I am encountering the following error:

 status = StatusCode.UNAVAILABLE
 details = "failed to connect to all addresses"

I tried changing the port value to IPv6 as well as tried multiple ports but nothing worked for me. Is there anything else I can do?

My setup:
Windows 10 with Anaconda virtual environment.

Hi, thanks for reaching out.

We had Windows users who had issues with their firewall, could you try turning that off?

Other than that you could try to use WSL2 on Windows 10, that should work like a charm (some of the Flower core devs use it on a daily basis w/ Ubuntu 18.04 or 20.04).
