Plex on nighthawak r7000

Im trying to run my server on my night hawk r7000, but my plex on my PC cannot connect using the night hawk router. I tried adding port forwarding to 32400, but still cannot connect. Please help?

Re: Plex on nighthawak r7000

I was able to make it work on my netgear r7000. I was at first port forwarding to 32400, but that would not work. So then I disabled the port forwarding and tried port triggering to 32400 TCP. After I changed the settings I rebooted my router and it worked. Now I can stream Plex from my PC.

Re: Plex on nighthawak r7000

Plex can only run on the R9000 and it's little brother, the R8900. If operating Plex Media Server on the R9000/8900 of course, there must be no port forwarding in place for 32400/TCP - it's rechable on the LAN and on the Internet/WAN interfce on the very same port. Anything else migth cause issues.

Or do you run a R7000 and Plex on the PC only, and need a port forarding to be able to rech the Plex Server on the PC from the Internet?

In either case, more insight must be provided - the crystal ball is on summer holidays.

I had this issue a couple of times.  If I recall I went into plex and either changed the port # and then changed it back (saving each time) or disabled/reenabled it.
