    Hi All,

    I'm playing around with different SBS2003 (small business server) installs and thought I'd try out it's uPnP support. Currently I'm doing so with a WRT54Gv5 (firmware was and is now

    SBS2003's CEICW saw that the the uPnP WRT54G router was on the network and tried to configure it. It actually showed the model, not just a generic "router". However, I got a non-descript error saying that it was unable to do so.

    I have deleted the .vbs file within the networking/icw folder, rerun the integrated setup and the CEICW a few times. During the CEICW firewall config, I always get the msg "an error has occured while..."

    Any ideas?

    Update: Contacted Linksys via chat support. Not good. Spent darn near 2 hours, mostly waiting for the tech to reply. They didn't know what Small Business Server is, I kept being asked "is this a web/game/file/etc server" (not something which matters). The tech repeatedly ignored previous statements, and couldn't explain why he wanted me to check "allow anonymous internet requests", even though I repeatedly told him the router ISN'T connected to anything on the WAN side.

    So, I'm still looking for a solution. They referred me to the XP and uPnP page on their site even though I had told them that 2003 does not have the "add/remove programs" option like XP does.

    Any ideas greatly helpfull.
