Cannot connect to mediaserver after Plex installation into a standard jail

<UN*X ignoramus warning on> I followed, scrupulously I thought, instructions for installing Plex as a media server in a jail in FREENAS. I called the mediaserver PLEX and assigned it an address of It all seemed to go error-free. When I tried to access it at, it timed out. I tried several different browsers, even tried deleting the jail and starting over from the beginning with no joy.
Is there a foolproof set of instructions to install PLEX on FreeNAS that a true idiot can follow? Or other suggestion? I had Plex working a couple of years ago but that was many versions of FreenNAS and PLEX ago.
Any help VERY MUCH appreciated.
