If you have UPNP enabled in the Emby server, that would not work with the VPN. If it's enabled in the Emby server, disable it.

 

Thanks, tried that but no change.

Why are you changing the port? Given that you have access with PIA disabled, the problem lies with them. With Torguard I just stuck with 8096. Some of their ports have restrictions. I imagine PIA may have something similar. In my case I have two routers to forward through before it gets to the VPN. I don't think this is an Emby issue. I think you need to check with PIA.

 

Yeah I'm not saying it's an Emby "issue" as if it's Emby's problem or a bug (nor is it PIA's), I'm just trying to troubleshoot my inability to get both apps working together.

@Luke and @Doofus no worries if you're out of suggestions (or time) for this. It's probably not worth more of your time. I tagged people who had done this successfully before hoping they would weight in but no dice. Cheers and thanks.

I actually just gave up. I use noip.com for DNS & am able to access my Emby server remotely most of the time. I finally managed to get Live TV working reasonably well, so I've been afraid to rock the boat. I allow access to a handful of users & accept that if I'm connected to the VPN that authorized remote users are just SOL. I'd really like to enable VPN & SSL, and there are probably some scary security risks involved with the way I have it set up today... but I remember reading somewhere that NordVPN no longer supports a key technology required for this, and that there was also a compatibility issue with my Archer A7 router.

@sundevil67, @sfatula, @Doofus, do you have any VPN tips?
