Have my Plex server running on a machine within my home LAN. On that machine I run Nord VPN with a P2P type connection 24/7. I also have Radarr and Sonarr running so they can automatically grab, rename, and move files to the respective media folders for Plex use.omegle
Prior to maybe the last couple weeks or so maintaining this Nord VPN connection wasn’t an issue with still accessing my Plex libraries via client software – e.g. away from home and using the Plex mobile app over LTE. Whether I was connected to a VPN or not I could still load up media in Plex when not on my LAN with no problem.
Now it seems as if that has changed. I tested it out and sure enough whenever my Plex server machine is connected to the VPN its remote access ceases. But sure enough as soon as I disconnect from the VPN remote access returns.
If anyone has any pointers or wisdom as to why the sudden change and/or if there are any fixes I would greatly appreciate it. I’d rather keep my VPN connection going 24/7 for Radarr/Sonnarr purposes, but I also don’t want to have to manually disconnect the Plex server’s VPN every time I want remote access.
