All,

 

I'm trying to reduce surface area and limit access from my Theater (v3.0.6) to the outside world. However, when I block all access on my firewall, I'm unable to start shows and receive the following message:

First off, I know that guy...he's a schmuck.  Second off, the account is set to unlimited concurrent streams, and I have a lifetime premium license. I'm running Beta Server 4.3.0.11.

 

When I open the machine back up on the firewall, everything is happy. So...what gives? Ultimately, if you just let me know what I need to open on the firewall / web filter, I'm happy.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

ed: The same is observed in the web client as well.

I think I figured out the issue. I have an access schedule on the used account that was getting in the way. When I removed the access schedule, everything seemed to function. I'll do some more testing to see fully verify the issue is resolved. I will say the message is pretty misleading. Maybe something that is more meaningful?

 

Thanks Luke!

Yes that would make sense. Thanks for the feedback.

I've a follow up on this.  I live in the boonies and my internet drops quite often.  Will I still be able to play my videos/tv/media on my LAN if the internet goes out for a couple days?  I've had issues in the past where Plex won't let me access my media because it can't phone home.

 

It usually isn't down for more than a couple days at a time if that matters.

 

thanks

david

Hi, yes you'll be fine, and it turns out this topic was not related to internet access. Thanks.
