Remote Access not available for my Plex server

server-windows

#1

Hello,

I am having trouble accessing my Plex server from outside of my home. Whenever I am over a friend's house, the server is unable to be reached. When I go to Remote Access under settings, it tells me that it is not available outside of my network. I'm not sure how to fix this and I would love some advice on how to. I am somewhat of a rookie at Plex and computer knowledge in general, so I may need things spelled out for me. I have enclosed a Word document with a picture of what I see under Remote Access in the Plex server.

Thank you in advance for your help.

You need to configure port forwarding on your router to access your home server outside of your LAN.

Thank you for responding, Simon. How would I go about doing this? Unfortunately, my computer knowledge is very minuscule.
