Welcome to Vodafone Community
I've recently switched to Vodafone Connect (Fibre).
Since the switch I cannot access my Plex server from outside of my network.
The only way I can access my Plex library is by exposing my main computers IP address to the internet by adding it to the 'static NAT/DMZ/Exposed Host' option.
I'm not sure this is the correct way to do this. Isn't this exposing my whole IP / computer to the internet?
I called support and unfortunately I proved a little more technical for the chap to be able to help. I was pointed to the portforwarding.com website, that is useful (and now bookmarked), but it also did not help.
My question boils down to a few fundementals.
Currently, the only way to access Plex remotely is to move my iMacs IP address to the DMZ - this is not really acceptable.
- UPNP is not automatically opening up the ports for Plex to work.
- Turning off the firewall makes no difference
- Port Management / Port Triggering on port 32400 is not working.
So, what is going on with this router? I had no problems port forwarding with the BT Hub, or my Netgear R7000.
I also have a simlar issue accessing my Philips Hue lights from outside my network.
