Help connecting to load generator

I have installed the LR load generator standalone package on a Windows Server 2016 VM on our internal network.  Everything was succesfull during install.  I also have LR (full install) on my laptop.  I am unable to connect to the load generator in the controller.  I've been researching but cannot find a solution yet.  Can someone help, please?  Here is the error log the controller gives shen trying to connect, just a timeout error.  Could it be that the default port is blocked?

Failed to connect to the agent.
Load Generator not responding after timeout

Hi
Windows server 2016 is not yet supported in LoadRunner.
Recommend to use either windows 7 64b, server 2008 r2 64b, server 2012 r2 64b or windows 10 64b.
Thanks,
Lior

Opening up default port 54345 resolved the issue.  Test scripts seem to be running fine on the LG now.  Thanks for the help.

Hi 

I'm using window 10 VM with 64b. I'm getting  the above error when connecting LG on the controller.

Thanks
