    PLEX Media server can only see 3 on a network of 4

    Hi there

    Not sure if this is a PLEX restriction but I seem to be able only to see 3 servers max . I'm not using PLEX pass so could it be a restriction on Ports etc.

    I've got PLEX running on 4 computers A,B.C,D

    On any computer I can only ever see 3 servers (All computers are visible and accessible on LAN from each other).

    for example on A I can see plexmediaservers on A,B,C
    on B it's servers on B,C,D

    Smart TV only sees 3 as well -- although if I run VLC on say an Amazon fire stick it can see all 4 computers. VLC even shows 4 PLEX servers when browsing the LAN although when using VLC I just use the files directly from shared HDD's.

    Is it possible that there is a limit on the number of servers one can have on the same account ? - all these computers are on an internal (Home) LAN and don't need to be accessed from outside.
