is being signed in to a plex account a requirement for making my content available remotely?
i'm trying to make my content be available remotely.
i run my own dns servers, etc so i don't need any type of "broker" type service to help me "find" my content on the internet.
i have static ip addresses, have created a public hostname in the dns, and have verified that traffic can get from the internet to the plex server on port 32400.
i did not sign in to the plex server with an account.
when i use the plex ios app i head to settings > advanced > server connections to add my ip address and port. when i save the ip address and port number i get an "error code: 401" (which basically means authorization required).
so, i'm back to my question of "do i need to be signed in to a plex account to make my content available remotely?" (my thinking is that if i do need to be signed in to make my content available remotely that that is ridiculous.)
thanks for any insight.
