2) Allow the SPAD.neXt application to communicate over the network:

In Windows Defender, click “Allow an app or feature through Windows Defender Firewall”

Scroll down the list until you see SPAD.neXt. Ensure the box with your current network type is ticked (select both private and public if you’re unsure)

Check the “Panels” tab of SPAD.neXt (third tab from the top). You should see “Class Echo Mobile” listed as a device.
