Remote access not working on Ubuntu 16.04

I've been having issues with remote access lately on my Plex Media Server. It was working before until all of a sudden it stopped working.

Steps I Have Taken:

  • Restarted the server
  • Restarted the modem/router combo
  • Disabled and reenabled remote access
  • Tried using uPnP (it is enabled on my router)
  • Changed from the Beta build to the Public build
  • Checked port forwards
  • Enabled the DMZ for my server

My external IP address matches correctly in the logs.
I noticed that people have been able to access the server in some cases via the Plex provided indirect routing.

Logs are attached. Any help would be appreciated.
