I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this question but here I go.
Here is how I came to where I am now. I had an OpenMediaVault machine that hosted plex. The Plex app stopped working because it was conflicting with the WebGUI Config panel of the OpenMediaVault. So I uninstalled Plex from that machine and it is no longer running on that box.
I then installed Plex Server 126.96.36.19902 on my Standalone (meaning the only plex is on this box and nothing else) Ubuntu 16.04 server.
Since I did this EVERY device shows the plex server is "indirect". While before the OMV Plex app died I had a direct connection.
I have not made any changes to my network from the uninstall from OVM to the install on the new Ubuntu box.
I then did some digging on forms and saw that DNSMasq needs to be disabled on my router. So I did that and rebooted the router. Still says indirect.
On the plex server, i disabled "Secure connections". It still says indirect.
I wish I knew what version was on my old OMV server as that I am sure that would help the troubleshooting but as per 188.8.131.5202 I keep getting "indirect"
Now to be clear I can get to the box via the Plex app on all of my devices but the quality is low.
Currently, my network looks like this
Router - 192.168.11.1 -> DHCP Server - 192.168.211.1 -> Media files are on - 192.168.211.115 -> and Plex is - 192.168.211.113 -> All devices 192.168.211.100-255
any direction would be helpful, thanks in advanced.
