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