When my friend and I tried to connect, FarPlay got stuck “Connecting to [partner’s name].”
Most users use FarPlay without making any changes to their network settings (remember to use Ethernet!). In unusual situations, FarPlay can show a Failed to connect to … error (as of version 1.2.3) or get stuck at the “Connecting to …” message (version 1.2.2 and older) when users try to connect. The most common cause is that one or more session participants is trying to use FarPlay on a network with an especially restrictive firewall (example: a university campus network). The steps at https://farplay.io/restrictive-firewalls/ typically solve these problems.
