Using this guide you’ll be able to create a secure Plex media server connection so that you can have uninterrupted access to the media server.

So, let’s look at the steps required :

  1. The first thing that needs to be done is to set up  plex on your seedbox using the one-click installation in the app.
  2. After installing plex on your seedbox you need t open it from the seedbox apps palette and login into your plex account using a registered email id and password.

5. After finishing the setup please refresh your browser and do not access plex with your seedbox IP address like you were doing before (https://xxxxxx.xxxxxxxxx.xxxx:13100/web/index.htm) because connecting like this will not be secure. You can access secure Plex connection  with this link: https://app.plex.tv/web/app 

Note: If any of your associated servers don’t support secure connections, you’ll connect to http://app.plex.tv/web/app over regular HTTP connection.

6. If you have a secure connection you’ll see a green lock as shown below.
