Amahi/Fedora 23 "Looking for servers"

jawastjawast Posts: 3Members

I'm attempting to run PlexMS on Amahi/Fedora 23, but the Media Player can't find the server. It looks like someone else had the same problem, but their solution (accessing the Plex login page through didn't work for me.

"You can confirm a ps -ef | grep -i plex returns running processes?"

Fedora is new to me, but as far as I'm aware, yes: plex 831 1 0 23:24 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Plex Media Server

"You should also find (as root) "/var/lib/plexmediaserver/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Preferences.xml" has been created (mind the quotes)."

File and file structure exists.

"if good so far, Check sundry (firewall). I now use FC24. 23, IIRC, defaulted to a closed firewall. You'll need to set Permanent ports for PMS to fully operate on your LAN with the devices and browsers on other machines."

Attempted to do this, but FirewallD isn't running, so I'm assuming it's a non-issue.

"What do you get when you open https:/ ?
This should be the First-Run sign-on and setup wizard."

No luck attempting to access Plex via that or I get the same time-out error.
