Connecting to Plex Remotely

Unable to connect to Plex
Hi,

I'm new to Plex and was successful in setting up the Media Manager on Windows Home Server. I've connected by server to myPlex and mapped to port 10041. When I try to connect to the server via my Android app, I receive a message that states that the host is Reachable, but requires credentials.

I don't know where/when/how these credentials are setup, and therefore cannot connect to my Server.

Please help!!
