Plex Server crashing on startup

dannylberrydannylberry Posts: 1Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Hello

I'm having a very odd issue with Plex in my home network, I rebooted the 2012r2 VM running on vmwave host I have running plex and when it vm came back up plex is now crashing at boot and I can't seem to get it to start.

The odd thing is that I install a new copy of Plex on a new VM and it is having the same issues, the VM is not on the same host.
I was though able to get an install of plex server working on my desktop when I was using a 4G hot spot.

thinking it could be a DNS issue I tried going around my ISPs DNS servers and using googles (8.8.8.8) but that didn't seem to help.

This is a copy of the logs from my plex VM.

from within the VM I can ping ocspx.digicert.com without any issues so I'm really not sure what's going on here.
My ISP is internode Australia and I've never had an issue like this before, has anyone seen something like this?

Regards
Danny
