    I am not tech savvy. I even have problem installing the plex server. After rebooting I only get up to this message “Make sure you’ve got the right web address: http://127.0.0.1:32400“. I have read somewhere that it may have something to do with VPN or my virus protection. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
