God no! UPnP is a security night-terror waiting to happen. When a
hacker with an IQ in double digits starts to look at how reminiscent of
a sieve UPnP is, they will have a field day. There is NO way to protect
a security device that implements UPnP.

If you knew the risks, you'd not be asking for this on a security
device. So, the right way to do it is not to do it at all.

Then forward the needed ports.

With port forwards.
