NameServer Peer Error when Joining a Group Workout

This error means that your computer or network is unable to establish a connection with the servers that are used to host Group Workouts.

In order to establish connection, TrainerRoad needs access to specific network ports. The necessary ports needed to establish connection could be blocked by firewall, VPN, or router settings.

Note: opening any ports could expose you to new security risks.
