Hi, First of all, I want to express thanks to anyone who can help me. I also want to mention I've looked at these posts and they seem to have different problems compared to the one I have: https://airvpn.org/forums/topic/5070-port-forwarding-with-plex-server/#5072 https://airvpn.org/forums/topic/6503-setup-airvpn-to-work-with-plex-media-server/ https://airvpn.org/forums/topic/26233-having-issues-with-plex-and-airvpn/ The problem I'm having with plex is consistent around the network adapter that airvpn uses. I've tested my port forward and it is reachable when plex is running so I know that part work. I've also port forwarded for my torrent client and that works too. The issue I'm having is plex won't detect the correct network adapter (TAP-Windows Adapter V9). I'm not sure what to do at this point. I've turned off port forwarding on my router like I'm supposed to since I'm using airvpn to port forward but if I turn off the VPN and turn my router port forward back on it works again. I've tried manually selecting a network adapter in plex but the only one that appears is my ethernet adapter. Is there any way around this? (like forcing plex to use that adapter somehow?) or is it possible I'm looking at this problem the wrong way? Thanks in advance!
So I have a DD-WRT router running in Openvpn client mode via my Airvpn account. I have setup forwarded ports in my airvpn account which work on my devices running their own airvpn client. However, I can't get any open ports to forward through the router to my Windows machine running apps that need the open ports. I've seen the notice on the help page for port forwarding: " you can't reach your listening service(s) through the VPN server exit-IP address from the very same machine that's running it/them and is connected to a VPN server, or from any other machine connected to that same VPN server." My interpretation of this statement is that my DD-WRT router running in vpn client mode, can't forward ports nor can my windows machine connected to my router access those ports. I'm struggling to really understand this restriction and why it is so. I have turned off all router and windows firewalls. The only way I can use forwarded ports is to run a windows client on my windows machine, which defeats having a dedicated vpn router. I have experimented over a month with commands for iptables using the router UI and other posts in the community to no avail. I hate to give up, but I'm out of solutions. Any simple answers and replies would be appreciated. I'm tech savy but not a guru.
