Bum deal. Could you forward that thread so we can see why no UPNP support? 


(Braden, you might take a look at Smoothwall.org if UPNP is that important.)

We already had this discussion awhile ago and the end result was we didn't
want it.

So no, it want be in a future build.

Onderwerp: [m0n0wall] UPnP as a possible future option?

I know there are many on this list who see UPnP as a horrible terrible
useless giant gaping security hole.  ;)

In a corporate setting, I agree 100%.  It has no place there.

However, for those of us who are using m0n0 at home, the dynamic port
forwarding that is enabled by UPnP is a fantastic feature.

I can't be the only person who has multiple machines that like to game.
Multiple Xboxes - while UPnP isn't *required* for Live to function, things
go much smoother if the router speaks UPnP.  The final nail in the coffin
for me is with BitTorrent.  I have several machines that all occasionally
need to use BT to grab stuff from the net.  For various reasons, I don't
want to give them static IPs or assign static port forwards.  UPnP is the
best way to make this work, since all modern BT clients support it.

Again, I realize that UPnP is a feature that some people hate, but that is
why there should be a easy to use on/off checkbox next to it...

Developers, what do you say?  Any chance of seeing a UPnP daemon in a future
build?

Also, FWIW, I'm unable to resolve mono.ch this evening, from my own
nameservers or a third party.
