Setting Plex to "Require" secure connection prevents docker container from properly deploying

      System: TrueNAS SCALE 21.02

      Plex Media Server (PMS) App Settings:

      • Chart Version: 1.1.0

      • Image Repo - plexinc/pms-docker

      • Image Tag - plexpass

      • Image Pull Policy - Only pull image if not present on host

      • Plex Node Port - 32400

      • Host Network - Checked

      • Transcode Hostpath Enabled - Unchecked

      • Data Hostpath Enabled - Checked

      • Config Hostpath Enabled - Unchecked

      BREAKING CHANGE:

      If the internal PMS setting "Settings > Network > Secure Connections" is changed from the default setting of "Preferred" to "Required" the pod is forced to perform a restart.

      SYMPTOMS:
      When re-deploying the Plex pod, docker/k3s is trying to test all of the ports that have been forwarded to the pod. During this test the local console returns the following every 5-10 seconds:

      IPVS: rr: UDP <PodIP>:32412 - no destination available
      IPVS: rr: UDP <PodIP>:32414 - no destination available

      This leaves the WebUI to display "Deploying" for the status fo the pod, preventing >_Shell access, and preventing the rendering of the "Portal" button.

      UDP Ports 32412 & 32414 are used by GDM local network discovery.

       

      I suspect the UDP ports 32412 & 32414 are used for unsecure connections and are being blocked by requiring secure connections.

       

      APP STATUS:

      The pod has in fact deployed and is operational. If you navigate to the pod via https://<IPaddress>:32400 (instead of the TrueNAS default of http://) the Plex WebUI will display, and Plex is fully operational.
