Plex Will not Start

RatokaRatoka Members, Plex Pass Posts: 17 Plex Pass

When upgrading FreeNAS to U2, Plex will no longer start with the following error:

I can revert to U1, and Plex will again start. Is there anything that can be tweaked on the Plex side, or is there additional information that I can provide to the FreeNAS team for help on the server side?

I found a topic about setting EnableIPv6 to 0, but I did not have this setting in my preference file. Adding the preference made no difference for me.

Thank you in advance!

    You likely have something already running on the port or you may be missing the loopback interface.
