NAT-PMP

    I have tarifa 032 installed and am trying to use the NAT-PMP functionality with uTorrent to automatically do port forwarding. Unfortunately, I am not having any success.

    On the router administration page, I have NAT-PMP enabled, UPnP disabled, and clean inactive routes enabled.

    On uTorrent 1.7.7 in the connections preferences, I have UPnP disabled, and NAT-PMP enabled.

    The uTorrent network indicator never turns green, indicating that I don't have a good connection. If I manually do port forwarding, or do UPnP, all is well. I just wanted to use NAT-PMP because I thought it was superior to UPnP.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    On the router administration page, I have NAT-PMP enabled, UPnP disabled, and clean inactive routes enabled. => You must enable UPnP, there is only an option to disable NAT-PMP (in the future this will change).

    On uTorrent 1.7.7 in the connections preferences, I have UPnP disabled, and NAT-PMP enabled => this is ok.

    uTorrent is tested and works without any problem with both UPnP and NAT-PMP.

    Thank you! all is working fine with UPnP enabled on the router. In the future will it be possible to enable NAT-PMP while UPnP is switched off? Perhaps I am not understanding correctly and the 2 options must co-exist.

    From a security standpoint, I would like to eventually disable UPnP but still allow NAT-PMP for the applications that support it. My reasoning is that any harmful programs will attempt to use UPnP rather than the newer NAT-PMP.

    Do you have any comments on that?

    Thank you for your excellent work.

    In the future, it will be possible to enable/disable UPnP and NAT-PMP as two seperate services.

    From a security standpoint, I would like to eventually disable UPnP but still allow NAT-PMP for the applications that support it. My reasoning is that any harmful programs will attempt to use UPnP rather than the newer NAT-PMP => It is always more save to shutdown unneeded services.
