About Remote Control on smartphone

Hello everyone,
For about a week I have been trying everything to try to get the foobar controller running on a Windows 11 PC through an iPhone 14 or through a recent Android smartphone.
I tried both with portable installations and in the OS, both the 32bit and x64 versions

Monkey mote lite does not connect, even when configuring manually by entering the PC's IP address and trying to connect manually, I tried to install Bonjour on the PC separately, but nothing...

I have read about some apps which however are not available on both Android and iPhone such as: foobar2000 controller, Beefweb Remote Control, FoobarCon Pro (just for windows device)

What do I really need to do to control foobar2K from a smartphone.
Are there step by step guides?

Thank you

Did you allow foobar2000 to connect on the firewall side?
This is most likely the reason for not being able to connect.

The control device I am using is below.

iOS > foobar2000 (32bit, 64bit)
MonkeyMote for foobar2000
MonkeyMote for foobar2000 HD

Android > foobar2000
foobar2000 controller PRO (32bit, 64bit)
MonkeyMote Music Remote (32bit, 64bit)
foobarCon PRO (32bit)

I haven't received an answer about whether you allowed foobar2000 in your firewall.
This is the most important thing.
-----
foobar2000 controller PRO: for example
Open the server wizard 3/5 choice → "Auto". 4/5 Automatic search icon tap.
If you cannot connect here, it is a problem with the firewall program connection permission settings.
