Remote for Plex Client (not server) - Plex iOS app
Recently transitioned to Plex and recently downloaded the Plex iOS app. I can sign into my myPlex just fine and see my Plex server and stream content just fine.
My question is, if I'm using the Plex client on my MBA (which is accessing my Plex server remotely), can I use the iOS app to control the client?
An example scenario:

it should work to control you mac.
make sure the firewall on your mac is off.
click the TV icon at the bottom of the plex screen, your mac should show up there if it's running the plex player.
If it's not there, try rebooting everything (iOS, your mac, and network gear)
once you've selected your mac, you can use the remote function, and you can even browse your library on the iOS device, select your media, and have it play on the Mac.
Can you see your mac in the apple remote app? it should be able to see itunes on your mac
