Remote Access Disables Randomly

Jason's MediaJason's Media Posts: 1Members

Last week I built a FreeNas machine, and successfully got Plex running on it. I can access the server no problem in my network. I've been having problems with the remote access though. I can enable it, and it says that it is fully accessible. After what seems to be a random amount of time though, the server is inaccessible outside of the network.

Every time this has happened, I disable and re-enable remote access, and it's back online.

I've tried all the instructions suggested by the Plex support. When I port forwarded port 32400, the server was not able to connect at all, so I disabled the port forward. I'm not sure if I'm doing this correctly though. My FreeNas machine and my Plex server have separate ip addresses, even though they are the same. I'm not sure if this is correct or not.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

    How are you running Plex on freenas? Is it in it's own VM or jail or what?
