So in some deeper trouble shooting, some smart TV's, xbox, ps4 have issues accessing my plex. Web browser and cellphone app seems to not have issues.
I am having some issues with pfBlockerNG, I have some some trouble shooting and am at a loss now. If anyone could please give a few ideas as to what could be doing this.
Sep 20 22:22:33 WAN Default deny rule IPv4 (1000000103) IPremoved:43162cpe-.san.res.rr.com IPremoved:32400 TCP:S
I have the forwarding and custom options enabled.
I even put all the plex domains in my whitelist.
I remove pfBlocker and I am good, when I pull the logs I dont see the plex port showing in any blocks. so I am lost here.
I did this based of a suggestion" DNS Resolver page, add a domain override for "plex.direct" and use a server like 18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124"
Somehow I deleted the WAN rule the is auto added at the time you do the NAT rule. This I do not remember doing at all but I am so dumb.
I really should have checked,. It came to mind when I was telling someone that "I can't figure out why the default rule is blocking it the only way that would happen is if I moved a rule to block or if I deleted it"
It clicked how stupid I am as I was saying it to the person.
