How to remote access plex media server with port

It will be highly dependent on your VPN configuration. Plex Media Server should already be listening on your VPN link for incoming connections if your VPN is configured to send all traffic through it. If you’re using a VPN Service Provider (rather than a server you set up yourself), the server is most likely using NAT to share its Internet link, which would prevent you from connecting to your server remotely via the VPN. In this situation, you can contact your VPN service provider to see if they have any workarounds.
However, the most safe way to access your Plex server is to reverse the process: set up a simple OpenVPN server at home and then VPN into your home network while you’re away. A bridged TAP configuration is what I recommend. This will allow you to connect to your Plex server as if your machine were linked to your home network.
My problem is that the internet is provided by my apartment complex, and the way the local ISP has set it up does not provide us with individual IP addresses. I was hoping that by purchasing a VPN, I would be able to give my PMS an external IP address. If you have any suggestions?

Unable to access plex / media server & shared resources

My Plex server is located on a laptop in my home network. On that rig, I run Nord VPN with a P2P link 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Radarr and Sonarr are both working, so they can capture, rename, and transfer files to the necessary media directories for Plex use. omegle omegle omegle omegle
Maintaining this Nord VPN link wasn’t an issue with still accessing my Plex libraries through client software – for example, when I was away from home and using the Plex mobile app over LTE – until maybe the last couple weeks or so. When I wasn’t on my LAN, I could still load media into Plex whether I was linked to a VPN or not.
That seems to have changed now. I put it to the test, and when my Plex server computer is connected to the VPN, remote access is disabled. However, once I detach from the VPN, remote access is restored.
I’d appreciate it if someone could give me any guidance or insight into why the sudden change occurred and/or if there are any remedies. I’d like to keep my VPN link active 24 hours a day, seven days a week for Radarr/Sonnarr, but I don’t want to have to manually disconnect the Plex server’s VPN every time I need remote access.

Fix plex media server remote access issues

I choose not to use Plex via a VPN. Plex’s protection system is about as strong as a VPN, but there are a few other things to remember. Plex would lose the ability to change the bitrate if VPN is used, and I will never share my VPN keys with someone else (which is normally higher on local connections than on remote ones).
Different users may have different needs. Some members of my family have access to my Plex media, but I do not share VPN keys with them. My secondary house is not set up to be connected to the main one (it could be done, but it would necessitate additional hardware), and its TV boxes depend on plex login to access the plex server in my main house.

Could you explain how to alter the parameter? Is it the most widely used network interface? I tried adding the 2nd ethernet adaptor’s local IP address, but it didn’t work, and I couldn’t think of any other options. I’m using a vpn service as a client, which I believe is the issue. In the meantime, I’ll do a few more searches for that parameter.

Vpn with plex and xfinitytv

I used xflak’s VPN Bypass utility to keep Remote Access while my PMS was linked to the PIA VPN (search these forums for xflak and you’ll find a lot of information on this, big thanks to xflak!). It worked for a while, but then it stopped working after an hour (or two, or three).
For the past two weeks, I’ve been trying to get PIA and PMS to get along. I followed your instructions (I have a Fios router and Windows 10) but xflak’s script does not work for me. It continues to time out. I needed to disable IPV6 according to his readme, which I did, but no luck. If you have any suggestions?
