Hello,

 

Will having a PlexPass give me a way to view the IP Address of users accessing my server?

    With plexpass and one of the additional apps from the Developer forum you can see IP addresses and more.

    PlexWatch & Plex Notify are two of the more popular ones.

    Here is what I see in the "Now Playing" screen (PlexPass feature):

    I guess you could look in the server log to find the request ip address.

    hthighway;

    How did you get that user history?

    Tell you the truth PlexWatch looks like a big pian in the ass to install/configure not the mention I use deep freeze and my PMS was moved to d drive along with the appdata.

    The user history is a built in feature of plexwatch

    hthighway,

    Would you be able to help me install and configure plexwatch?

    This sounds complicated to install and use but something i would love to utilize.  I must not understand it fully because i don't have any knowledge about running a web server or anything (not sure if that's even needed).  Is there a step by step on getting plex watch on my machine and then running.  Keep in mind my knowledge of doing this is very small.  I have a windows 7 PC.

    Take a look at plex Notify if you are running on Windows.

    It has an installer and is very easy to get up and running

    How do I get access to the Plex.notify.codeplex.com??  It said that I need to be a developer or a contributer in order to see it.
