hi i did also have this error when i first started using plex and found that bittorrent was causing a clash with the ports being used by plex server on my imac. I cannot run bittorrent and plex at the same time , or at least i cant start plex when bittorrent is running and publish the server , it starts but doesn't show up on my samsung tv or on plex on my ipad. However I can start bitorrent after plex has already started and has been used on my lan network. it would be really helpful if we could change the plex port to be something bittorrent wasn't using or visa versa but have not worked that out.
I'm trying to publish my Plex server over my local network. I have done this before and had 0 problems. However, now I go to publish and get the "myPlex could not connect to your server - retry" every time. Any help or ideas would be great. I have a Linksys E2500 router, firmware version 1.0.05 and am running Win7 on my computer/server. I have tried to port map the router and it does but all I get from Plex is what I mentioned above. I'm a comp sci graduate so I know my way around the computer and even had a fellow comp sci graduate try and help set it up after I failed, yet nothing. So please any ideas or help would be greatly welcomed! I want to use Plex on my smart tv so bad and all these problems are killing me. The only thing I can think of is maybe buying a new router... HELP!

1) try to publish to myplex with the same computer on someone else's internet connection. -> if that works. the problem is your router/internet connection at home
2) try to publish another computer on someone else's internet connection -> if that works -> try publishing that same computer on your own router/internet connection.
This will lead you to where the actual problem is.
Another thing. Do you have uPNP enabled?

Trying your other suggestions. I'm trying them with my laptop instead of the desktop, because well I really don't want to unhook everything and take it to another location.

I'm a novice to the Plex community and could really use some assistance with this. I will appreciate any help some of you experts can provide.
