I know this is a Noob question.

But I am new to Plexrequest... I have successfully installed plexrequest on my Windows PC. I am able to access my the admin/users page via localhost... How are my users that are not on my local Lan able to use Plexrequest.net


Update: Nevermind I found the answer in another Plex Subforum

    Absolutely hate it when I come across a thread that says answered but it's just an edit "never mind i found the answer"
    Either link the answer or delete the post.

    I am using Ombi which is a fork of plexrequest and have it setup and working. Basically you forward the port of plexrequest in your router ... i did port 80 (http port) to plex request port. Then you should be able to access that via your external ip : port number ... so basically

    This is exactly how your plex server works also .... i took plexrequest 1 step further and purchased a domain so my users didnt need to remeber the ip .. and pointed the doamin to my server.

    Any rate I hope that atleast gets you looking in the right direction
