Remote Access Plex Media Server Behind A VPN

Having issues with your Plex Media Server not using the VPN the right way?

Plex Media Server is the popular choice for making your media collection available to an array of devices. If you use torrents for acquiring new content then you of course use a VPN as well for safety. Plex routes traffic through plex.tv which goes through your VPN connection, meaning remotely accessing your media collection would require port forwarding through the VPN. Luckily XFlak has created a batch script to reroute Plex traffic through your normal network connection, bypassing the VPN and restoring Plex Media Server remote access behind the VPN. This tutorial is relatively easy to set up on Windows 7, 8 and 10. It should work on Windows Server 2008, 2012 and 2016 too.  A great VPN to use that is fast and secure is IPVANISH.
