It seems the Plex app on the PPM has issues locating my local (same network) Plex media server.
Every other device on my network (both on iOS and Android) detect the server fine, and about 10% of the time my PPM will detect it. This leads me to believe there is an issue with the PPM software, as every other device is fine.
I do use VPN on all my devices, and occasionally I need to disconnect the VPNs to get them connected again, but it’s usually just a quick disconnect and reconnect on all my other devices. The PPM just stubbornly won’t connect, even when the VPN is disabled on both the PPM and server.
I’ve tried signing out then back in with the VPNs off on both, and have had occasional success (read 10% of the time).
