PS4 Plex Connection Issue

For some reason Plex Player on the PS4 erratically loses the ability to connect. I will get the "Sorry, there appears to be a problem connecting. Please try again later" later error for nearly an hour or two while I reset the Playstation, my computer, etc. However, I can access the server through my laptop and see the server with my phone locally. I can even see and play the files through the PS4 media player. Nothing I do has rendered a long term solution to this and the application continually has an issue. What are my options here? I wanted to try the software before subscribing, however this is leaving a horrible taste in my mouth that makes me want to look for other options or just build it myself with UMS.
