Bug? IPv6 causes 'file not found'

erikooerikoo Posts: 1Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

First of all, I really like the Plex -Sonos combo. Bought a lifetime plex pass, especially for this setup.

Today I found out that enabling the IPv6 support in Plex will disable Sonos playback. My plex is running on a raspi-3 .

Symptoms: Sonos (iphone app, Mac OS App) can browse plex content, but playback will result in 'File not found' in the sonos App.

Cause: there is no server listening on 127.0.0.1:32401, only on ::1:32401, however the logging shows that internal some calls are made to 127.0.0.1 instead of ::1 . See loggings bellow.

Workaround: untick the IPv6 setting in plex.
Fixes: Plex should listen on both IPv4 and IPV6 ports. Or the plex plugin should use ::1 instead of 127.0.0.1 in the libcurl calls.

Hope this helps anybody and the devs can make a fix.

    I have Plex using IPv6 without any problems. I can access it both through IPv6 and IPv4, and my Sonos (which only uses IPv4 still) has no problems playing music from my Plex server as well.

    My Plex server is currently running on a WD Pro NAS with both IPv4 and IPv6 set up. I previously had it set up under Windows with IPv6 enabled and had no problems there too.
