Rocket Control Panel connection error

2021-05-05, 23:01 PM

Thinkpad T14 AMD


When I check for new firmware using Rocket Control panel, I get "Connection Error; Network error. check your firewall"


I can run it no problem on my desktop. So unplugged network cable from my pc and put it in my T14. I still get the error. That tells me the issue resides somewhere in my laptop?


I turned off the windows defender and firewall to see if I still have the problem. It still exists, though those are turned on, on my desktop.

What gives?

Hi JQam!




Which firmware are you looking for? Are you experiencing any issues with your laptop? 


To check for updates, use the Lenovo Vantage app instead and see if the issue is the same.
