    While I cant speak to the seperate network segmentation aspect of your question, I also run a PLEX media server.  I have manually forwarded port 32400 and it seems to run just fine without any additional steps made.  Access remotely and locally works fairly well, as would be expected.

    I am curious now about what the benefits / drawbacks a sequestered PLEX server might bring to the mix....

    You can setup barriers between your segments locally, and then use the "allow" rule to allow communication into certain segments.

    Also, you will see the local network rules are directional.  You can pick traffic to and traffic from (or both) network segments or all local networks.

    Say if you have SEG A and SEG B

    You can say, on SEG A, block all to Local network traffic.  Will will block SEG A sending anything, but ... still allow SEG B to talk to SEG A.
