Plex Media Server UFW rule


title=Plex Media Server (Standard)
description=The Plex Media Server

title=Plex Media Server (DLNA)
description=The Plex Media Server (additional DLNA capability only)

title=Plex Media Server (Standard + DLNA)
description=The Plex Media Server (with additional DLNA capability)

Once you have defined your application file tell ufw to reload the application definitions with:

ufw app update plexmediaserver

Use it with:

ufw allow plexmediaserver-all
Copy link

i agree that you have opened all the ports as mentioned in
still, I see the remote access is disabled.
my ufw log has few entries for blocked connection as below
Dec 7 13:53:28 XXXX kernel: [2168275.032152] [UFW BLOCK] IN=eno1 OUT= MAC=a0:d3:c1:2b:2a:7f:00:XXXXXXXXXXXX SRC= DST= LEN=293 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=64 ID=0 DF PROTO=UDP SPT=1900 DPT=35513 LEN=273

Remember that if you're not a root user (usually you should not be) you'll need sudo before each command.
