Why can I not connect to the server on Plex via Roku?

I recently added (and linked) the PLEX channel on my Roku to my PLEX account. I downloaded the software, but when I try to go to the “Channel Directory” on my computer through the software program, I cannot seem to connect to the server. I was able to find what I believe is my IP address, and host name (from my PC) and tried to enter that info to the “add server manually” section on my TV, and both would not connect.

ANY help as to what I am missing would be GREAT. I am not very technical, so please try to keep responses easy to understand. :-)

Also, side note question: Will PLEX allow me to view anything I could watch only on my computer on my TV?
