How to setup RasPlex for offline use
I am wondering how to setup RasPlex for offline use. I live in an area that has shotty reliability in extreme weather. My inet goes out several times a month and sometimes for days.
I have been trying to configure this RasPlex for offline use and simulating an outage of my internet. This still allows me to connect to my local Plex server, however if I restart the pi and simulate a power loss (frequent as well) I can NO longer connect to my local media.
I can use any other device however and still use Plex when my inet is down, I want that for RasPlex so this device can perform equally. I had to give up chromecast because it required a constant inet connection.
Can any one please tell me how to set that up. Or suggest another app that works just as well as RasPlex that can accomplish that goal please.
Just a FYI
- I can access my local network files WITHOUT logging into plex when my inet is connected and freshly rebooted my pi.
- I have put in the manual media server under >>> Preferences>Media Server>Manually specify server <<< to my local ip address and correct port.
- I have made sure that my server firewall accepts all connections from the pi's ip address. I even disabled to try this out.
