Issues getting Calibre Companion to connect to Calibre on Win10

I keep getting 'could not find Calibre'.
My PC is wired, connection is 'private'. I can ping the PC from my phone. If I start the Calibre content server, I can open a browser on my phone and go to [PC IP address]:8080 and I get a page showing my books.
To get to this point, I went to my firewall, deleted all rules that mention 'calibre', rebooted, restarted caliblre, opened wireless connection, said 'yes' to the firewall dialog that pops up - and see a new firewall rule for calibre.
Any ideas?

I have specified the content server address (my pc) - the one I can open in a browser - and when I try to open a content server, I still get 'not found'.

I've just tried with a second device that also has CC on it - both wireless and content server connect fine.

Got it! Once I knew it was a device issue, I went digging in iptables/netfilter. Yep, reinstalling the app - that I'd done while trying to figure out the win10 issues gave it a new ID, which wasn't in the 'allowed out' chain.
