This was a copy and paste error. Should look like

$ nmap -sU -p 32400 myrouter
------------------^

Meanwhile i made some more investigation. Both TCP/UDP should be open.

OPEN_TCP="32400"
OPEN_UDP="32400"

But it did not change anything. I followed the howto writen here: http://wiki.plexapp.com/index.php/MyPlex#When_Auto-Configuration_Fails

Its not like that myplex is a feature which i need desperatly but i would like to controle the  firewall 100%. Does anyone use Plex Media Server with myplex behind an arno firewall?

Greetings!
