I am a new user so any help would be appreciated. I have monitored my PC for the last month, and it is showing over 9 GB external traffic downloaded by Plex Media Server. My Plex server is strictly used on my local network so I cannot imagine why it would use up such a large amount.
Before I ask Plex, I thought I would ask here and see if I am reading this correctly.
Not sure if I can post pictures, so here is what I am seeing in GlassWire:
On the Usage page, I click “Apps” and highlight “Plex Media Server”, it shows “Incoming External” traffic of 9.6 GB down. In the Hosts list there are the usual ones Plex uses but the one that uses 9.5 GB is an IP address instead of a website address - something like 2xx.255.255.2xx (I obscured the numbers just in case) but they are definitely weird. Under traffic type it says “Microsoft SSDP Enables discovery of UPnP devices - 9.5 GB”
I am just wondering if it is confusing local traffic inside my network for external traffic. I actually have 2 routers chained together, the Uverse one in the basement doing all the routing and a 2nd one on the main floor that acts as a switch but provides wifi to the house. The Plex server is connected to the 2nd one.
