I know you've probably seen more than you should of these types of threads, but I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why I get this error.
I don't know much about the technical side of things, I like to read and try things out. I can't even give you guys a log, since I don't know how to do that, ha.
I just build my first HTPC.
I use PIA as a VPN.
I have been able to port forward successfully in my Netgear router even with PIA.
I cannot seem to figure out how to get myplex server to connect so I can view all of my files on the road.
What am I doing wrong? It won't work "standard" and it will not work if I manually forward the port, 32400. I tried to port forward using the recommended port. I have turned off VPN and it still did not work. I have the following settings enabled on my router:
I am using Netgear Genie version V22.214.171.124_60.0.87
External Starting and ending port is 32400
Use the same port range is checked
Internal starting port and internal ending port is 32400
Internal IP is 10.0.0.2, which is the computer the MPS is installed on, and I am currently on/HTPC.
What am I doing wrong? I know it's probably easy for someone out there, buy I'm not that smart.
