Plex Media Server problems
I previously posted the following: I run a Plex Media Server which is accessed at home via ethernet and wireless on my local network . I have a port forwarding rule set for my computer running the server and Plex indicates that it is fully accessible. The problem is that sometimes connections (at home) cannot be made to the server, which makes Plex then run in "relayed connection" (which is indirect, slow, and limited). Since I sometimes can connect directly, my best guess is that once one local network device connects to the server, the Core router is not allowing any other devices to connect (which then result in crappy relayed connections). Any ideas? Anyone else running a Plex Media Server without such problems? I thought that I had resolved the problem by allowing insecure connections (in Plex's advanced settings) on my network, but it did not resolve the problem. Upon logging in (although not while running), I frequently lose the connection to the Plex Media Server and, if I am already connecting on another device, I cannot make a direct connection. As I suggested above, it appears that the Core is not allowing multiple simultaneous connections. Anyone having similar problems and/or found a solution?
