QNAP TS-459 - Plex "Looking for servers..."
Firmware: 4.2.6 Build 20171026
LAN IP: 192.168.3.5 / 255.255.255.0
Plex Version: v188.8.131.5229 (Downloaded .qpkg from Plex, installed manually in AppCenter)
I have beat my head against the wall on this for several days. I have actually formatted the NAS 3 times, installed Plex App several times. The application installs fine, services are started, and I can access the page "http://192.168.3.5:32400/web/index.html" from my LAN and from the WAN as I have 32400 open. However, the media server is never discovered. I have:
- Toggled off/on other QNAP applications (DLNA, Music Station, Photos stations, iSCSI, etc)
- After one factory reset, I installed the Plex app from the QNAP Store too, which is a very old version, it too has the same problems.
- Just for kicks, I attempted to install the 64 bit version (supposedly only needed when on 4.3.x) It installs, but won't display the "http://192.168.3.5:32400/web/index.html" page.
Truthfully I'm out of ideas. 4.3.x Firmware isn't available for my device, and I would prefer to not try and downgrade this back to an older 4.2.x version if possible. Anyone have anything else that they recommend I look at? Happy to pull any logs, files, configs or whatever is needed. I have SSH access as well as WINSCP access to all directories.
Thank you in advance.
