Having an issue with Plex Remote Access that I have narrowed down to a "block all traffic from internet rule".
These are the rules I have going on that apply:
- All Devices - Block Traffic from Internet (default rule)
- LAN X - Block Traffic from & to All Local Networks, Block Traffic from Internet
When I port forward through "Network Manager -> NAT Settings -> Port Forwarding" I set up this rule: Protocol TCP, External Port 32400, Internal Port Device [Plex Server], Internal Port [Port 32400]. Allow on Firewall - Yes (this creates a firewall rule that allows Traffic from Internet on Plex Server, TCP Port 32400.
But when I try to remote access, the connection is blocked. And I can see it blocked in the firewalla app, "Blocked [ip address] from accessing device [Plex Server]". On the [Plex Server] device information, it shows Port TCP 32400, and in the source device information, it shows [ip address] and port TCP 1779.
I'm guessing I have something messed up here, but if I disable the LAN X "Block Traffic from Internet" rule then remote access works just fine. I thought the allow rule created by the port forward would allow this connection, why is it not?
