Plex Media Player for Mac would not connect

Perm1990Perm1990 Posts: 5Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I just "installed" the "new" Plex Media Player (1.3.5) on OSX (10.11.6).
I used the Plex Home Theater app before that (which works good).

The Plex Media Player see my Plex Media Server ( @ FreeBSD 10.3-STABLE) but cannot connect to them:
"The server "PlexMediaServer" is unreachable. Make sure it's running, double check your network, and try again."

All my other Plex Players (several iOS devices, Apple TV 4 App, Via Web Player) have not problems to connect and to play the content.

Any hints on this problem?

Many thanks in advanced.

    Update: Now I 'using' the Plex Media Player Mac OS X and Plex Media Server on FreeBSD
    still no connection to the server.
    The Plex Media Player shows me the same information as the web access to the server.
    But except the server configuration itself - it still show the error page.
