    No soup for you!
    The server you're trying to access doesn't want to let you in. Make sure you're signed in as a user with access to this server.

    Currently using version Install the web tools, when I try to open the tools from one of the 2 IP addresses shown, it simply opens another window that looks identical to the one showing me the 2 IP addresses I need to open. Obviously, this plug in doesn't work with the current version of Plex.

    The installation doesn't even work with the latest version of Plex. So I can't even address the issue of it doing nothing. I've found a number of Plex related articles on this site are dated. I really wish they wou;ld put in server version numbers so we have a clue!!

    Nothing in this article actually works. I got so far as installing the unsupported app store but at the moment, nothing in that store actually works - although installed - nothing is working.
