Dear friends, I'm having a REALLY herd time getting the remote access for my Plex Media Server running. Most drustrating thing is, that it used to work, but no longer (maybe since update to android 7?). I tried several things mentioned here in the forum. I'm not an IT expert, so maybe I didn't do it right.
Plex Media Server: Nvidia Shield TV, connected via LAN to gigabit-Switch connected to router my router
Router: Fritz!Box 7490
Media Library: WD Mycloud NAS
Plex server accessible in home network, works fine. When I try to turn remote access on in the Plex Web app, it shows red most of the time. Sometimes green, but within seconds back to red. IP address of my shield is not shown ("unknown")
What I tried:
Told the router to always give the shield the same IP address (which is working); configured Port forwarding to Port 34200 internal and external; later I also tried other external ports like 34201 etc.).
Enabled/disabled automatic port forwarding for the shield (no effect)
Allowed unsecure connections
Plex Web App:
Tried to turn on remote access automatic / with manual port forwarding: No effect
Any ideas on that? Would be much appreciated!
