Remote Rasplex server with a Plex/Web client

meryonmeryon Posts: 30Members ✭✭


I have a Rasplex distribution installed on a Rasberry. I'd like to remote it on my main computer with a Plex Web page.
But Rasplex doesn't appear in the remote icon. It does when I use it on my Android device.
Do you have any suggestion ?

Thanks a lot!

    mmm, stupid question

    how are you accessing the server on the raspberry?

    Rasplex is a Plex client, not a server.

    I feel that it unclear what you are actually asking and want to do.

    My interpretation is that you got Rasplex/RasPi running. I assume that everything is fine with it, i.e. it connects to your server.

    Now you want to remotely control it from your main computer (by chance a Cray? ;-) ) via the plex web app running in a browser.

    Is that right?

    Are your RasPi and your main computer on the same network subnet. E.g. my laptop and my Pi in the office are not. Hence, one can not discover the other.

    I hope I guessed it right.
