I have installed Plex on my Pi 3 using https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-pi-plex-server/

The installation works fine and able to get onto Plex. But when I am trying to access Plex and connect to server, getting following error:

The server "NameofPiServer" is unavailable Plex will automatically try to reconnect to this server.

I am not sure what's causing the issue. I have piVPN and Samba running on my Pi.

  • Where are you connecting from(LAN or Wan)? What do the Plex logs say. – mintyfreshpenguin Jan 3 '18 at 9:48
  • The tutorial you link is odd to me. I've never seen the method they use to set a static IP before. You should be using dhcpd or reserve an addr in your router. Anyway I'd bet address resolution is the most likely cause of your problems. – mintyfreshpenguin Jan 3 '18 at 10:06
  • I use Plex with openmediavault (seperate image). It works quite well with my raspberry pi 2 – Darkest N2O Jan 5 '18 at 19:33
