Connect Server with only CLI

server-linux

#1

Hello!

Since I only have the Linux CLI on my Server I am not able to "connect" my media server with the Plex database, because I do not have any graphical interface. How can I connect both services together? I have really no clue and it is always saying "Searching for Servers". The Server is not running locally in my network.

Regards,
Dominik

SSH tunnel.

From local host:

ssh -L  8888:127.0.0.1:32400  ip.addr.of.otherhost
<sign in>
<let sit idle>

In local browser tab: Open http://127.0.0.1:8888/web

You may change the local port number (8888) if the conflicts with any other program already in use
