I have a Plex media server running at home. I'm at a different location at the moment, and am unable to access my content through a PS3 (which I have used months ago successfully to view my Plex server.) I can view my content through my MacBook as well as my iPhone, so I know the server is running. I can access Netflix on the PS3, so I know it has internet access. I am logged into my Plex account on the PS3. I can see my server in the drop down, but it's highlighted red with a "Connecting" error. When I select it, it eventually times out, and shows me a screen full of text saying how it failed trying to connect to two IPs (one external IP, which is the external IP of my home's internet, and another local IP (which is the local IP of my QNAP on my home network, but doesn't map to anything on the current network I'm on.))
Is the PS3 app somehow caching an expired IP address? Does anyone have any suggestions how I can fix this. Unfortunately I don't have physical or remote (SSH) access to my QNAP. The PS3 isn't my primary device for viewing Plex content. I only use it when visiting the folks. I'm not familiar with the current state of the PS3 Plex app, or how to possibly fix this issue. I also tried signing out and signing back into the Plex client without any luck.
