Dear Bro,

I am installing Plex to replace Video Station. At the final stage, the Finish button turn around and around (see the photo). How to solve this problem?
I also set the name and add film folder at the step two.

That should work... however, for v6, I would install Plex manually from the plex.tv site.
After a long work, it run on my NAS now. But there is a problem. I can access my library when I'm at home but office. I also NAT port 32400, but when I'm at the office, I cannot login using local user, like plex :( Don't know why
 
As @Telos said, it's very probable that outbound connections from a business environment will be controlled. Often the ports you can connect HTTP and HTTPS will be restricted to only the standard 80 and 443, respectively.

If you have permitted access to DSM on its HTTP and HTTPS ports (defaulted to 5000 and 5001) from the Internet then you may find that these don't work from you business connection too.

The way that Plex works if you connect via plex.tv is to redirect your request to your Plex server so you will have direct connectivity (i.e. not via plex.tv). If you browser to Plex directly https://mynas.somedomain.com:32400 then the business firewall will block this. The apps seem to connect and authenticate via plex.tv and use the specified port to access your Plex server. But you can browse direct and this works if you setup a reverse proxy, e.g set up https://plex.mynas.somedomain.com on the NAS to be proxied to https://127.0.0.1:32400.

See section 'Customize Reverse Proxy Rules'.

Also, see @Rusty's tutorial on reverse proxy.
