Rokus treating connections to local server as remote

Ever since migrating my server to a new network, my Roku clients are showing as connecting to my PMS through a relayed connection. But if I connect from a PC on the same network via Plex Web all is fine. Even if I put the IP of my server in as a manual connection it makes no difference. I'm not understanding how this could be as all the devices are on the same network.

Any ideas?

    This was a DNS rebinding issue. Once I fixed that on my pfSense box the issue was resolved once the Roku's rebooted. I had already had the DNS rebinding issue fixed but this PMS was running in my "offsite" location so I had forgotten about it there.
