Hello, I have a friend who is too proud, stubborn, or bullheaded to post on the forums for some unknown reason.
Xfinity Tv Plex
Does anyone have Comcast Xfinity w/ Unlimited Data and XFi security?
If so, do you have your Plex server up and running with direct access and not relay?
Did you have to call Comcast to accomplish that?
He’s apparently having an issue where he’s opened up the ports on their security webpage, but it’s blocking every IP that attempts to connect and they have to manually allow it… Anyone know what he’s talking about and where to go to shut this “Feature” off if that’s what’s causing his issues?
See what Flex can do and how easy it is to get started in the video or follow the step-by-step activation guide within this overview.
People can only access through relay… Any help is appreciated.
Exclusively available to cord-cutters who pay Comcast for broadband but not TV, Xfinity Flex consists of a 4K-capable set-top box and a competent, voice-activated, RF remote control to serve up. I think Comcast/Xfinity is blocking some traffic for plex.tv. I have noticed that friends sharing their library with me do not show up on the menu to the left. I checked the friend status is still there and after talking with friends of plex, they stated that they did not remove my access.
I have been having an issue with a particular user over the past year accessing my plex server. I have don’t some research, tried a million ways to find a solution but I have not been able to find one. I am hoping someone hear can help me. I will try to be as detailed as possible.
ISSUE: One plex user out my 15 can not connect to the plex server.
DETAILS: I have 14 outside the network users. All can connect but one user. All users are using the Xfinity Modem (up do date). The user that can not connect has had the modem replaced 3 times in search of fixing this issue. The user that can not connect lives right next door to me. The other users are within a block, or blocks of my server (a few further out in my city in a 10 mile radius). We all have the same hardware. The user that is not able to connect (via TV - wireless) simply keep getting ‘can not connect to server’ error. We also tried connecting via ethernet (not over the xfinity’s modems wifi) and had the same error. Another note is that if we log in with a laptop, we CAN connect BUT its with an ‘indirect’ connection, which is slow and lagging (but does connect).
TRIED: I have set up port forward, static IP, disabled secure connections, and all though everything still works for all other users, the user in question devices still won’t connect.
Xfinity Flex Review
THOUGHTS: It seem the user that can not connect has some sort of firewall, or there xfinity modem is blocking or not allowing a secure connection to go through. I am unsure why this would be different since all the other users in the same vicinity, and with the same hardware are not experiencing this issue. Again, we have replaced the xfinity modem at least 3 times, and xfinity has tired to help us, but say it is not them (I beg to differ).
