Plex and OpenPHT on localhost (offline)
I think this can be done, let me explain the scenario: on my local wi-fi network I have a Plex server on a nuc with 1TB hard drive, I can easily connect to that with my clients, or I can hook it to a TV via HDMI and launch OpenPHT on the nuc to use the "box" as both a "server" and "player". All this works when there's a wi-fi connection.
I need to use the same "box" in a place where no wi-fi is available, I checked with a VM some times ago and it worked, I mean, I was able to use OpenPHT and Plex offline, using 127.0.0.1 as server address. Recently I brought my box on the field, with OpenPHT 1.7.1 and latest PMS, and although at the beginning I could see my library, at a second boot only the "Search" menu was there, even if I selected "Scan for localhost".
I don't know if there's some settings on OpenPHT side, therefore I'm posting it here, I know with latest PMS versions you need to be signed in to make it work, so not only wi-fi but network access is needed, but is there a way to use, on the same machine, OpenPHT client and PMS server (both on localhost) without network access or wi-fi local network, and therefore no sign-in?
