Remote Access: Hit and Miss

pthomannpthomann Posts: 10Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

I have enabled Remote Access while signed in to my Plex Premium account. After about an hour, with no apparent changes, it shows red and says Remote Access not available. I have to sign out and sign back in for it to re-engage, but it only lasts for a short period of time. I have checked my modem settings and have tried manually port forwarding to no avail. I think I need to go back to square 1, can anyone help me with this?

    I did as you suggested, AmazingRando24 and so far, it seems to be working. It does appear that the Remote Access seems to turn-off while the PC sleeps or goes into screensaver mode, but then comes back almost instantly. Not sure why this is, but anyway....Thanks for the help!

    I recommend to do this on all Windows computers which are used either as Plex Server or Plex clients.
    It might help with the remaining issue:
