About a year ago, I came to the conclusion that I do not want SMB1 in my house anymore for obvious reasons. So I moved away from the music library towards Plex which I experience reasonable but cumbersome at the same time. Still it works.
But….Plex needs port forwarding 32400 and since a couple of days I`m using threat management on my router gateway and guess what: there are multiple ‘sources’ knocking on that particular port every day. This is for me a ‘no go’ with Plex remote access unless someone sees alternatives using Plex without keeping that port opened (question 1 ).
So assuming I need to say goodbye to Plex (I only keep it alive for Sonos which is rather heavy): what are my alternatives in the current landscape of Sonos services to connect Sonos to the music on my Synology NAS (question 2).
