Plex Media Server Channels blocked on Roku

I installed the Plex media server on a dedicated Windows 7 machine, and proceeded to try adding channels. I tried on the server side and I tried on the client side (the Roku).

But no matter which way I added channels, they only showed up on the server. I found out they were being blocked.

I solved it by opening port 32400 in the Windows firewall. To do this:

  1. Go into Windows Firewall
  2. Advanced settings
  3. Click on inbound settings
  4. Click on new rule
  5. Select port
  6. Under "Specific local ports" add 32400
