    A new build is available for testing, it adresses two issues:

    Update for dnsmasq form 2.40 to 2.45, this adresses a serious dns security risk, see: http://www.doxpara.com/

    Update for miniUPnP, added a secure mode, added GENA support.
    On other new feature, you can disable/enable UPnP and NAT-PMP seperately.

    Oh thank you for this. I'm going to test this firmware this evening when I get home.

    Excellent results so far. I can confirm that NAT-PMP is working independently of UPnP. I have tested uTorrent and Limewire. Firmware seems stable. I will continue to monitor and provide you with feedback.

    One question... I read your response with regard to "inactive rule cleaning" but I confess I am not an expert at Linux commands. I am familiar with Telnet, but can you give me instructions on how to view the inactive rule cleaning thresholds and what they mean? What sequence of commands would I use? I notice that the default threshold is 600. I assume that is in seconds, so any rule older than 10 minutes is cleaned correct? What is the poll interval for checking for inactive rules? 30 seconds?

    Sorry for being such a pain, but Tarifa firmware is next to perfect for my needs. I am recommending Tarifa to all my friends and colleagues at work.

    MiniUPnP and NVRAM configuration values

    There are two parameters for the miniUPnP threshold configuration,
    only the clean_ruleset_interval settings is used in the firmware.
    The threshold uses its default miniUPnPd value (=10).

    see: clean_ruleset_interval=600 in the configuration file. (/tmp/...)

    This means every 600 seconds (=10 minutes) there is a check and if there are more then 10 rules, the inactive ones are deleted.

    Tarifa 033 has a change that makes it easier to customize MiniUPnPd.

    Added two NVRAM settings:
    miniupnpd_clean_ruleset_interval=600 /*cleaning interval in seconds */
    miniupnpd_clean_ruleset_threshold=20 /* Threshold for cleaning unused rules */

    You can set these in telnet (first enable telnet in the router).
    For example clean every hour:

    nvram set miniupnpd_clean_ruleset_threshold=6

    Save these settings:
    nvram commit

    Other available settings are:

    upnp_enable=1 /* 0:Disable 1:Enable */
    upnp_nat_pmp_enable=1 /* 0:Disable 1:Enable */
    upnp_clean_ruleset_enable=0 /* 0:Disable 1:Enable */
    upnp_secure_mode=1 /* 0:Disable 1:Enable */
    miniupnpd_clean_ruleset_interval=600 /*cleaning interval in seconds */
    miniupnpd_clean_ruleset_threshold=20 /* Threshold for cleaning unused rules */
    miniupnpd_port=5000 /* MINIUPNPD PORT */
    miniupnpd_bitrate_up=100000000 /* Bitrate upstream */
    miniupnpd_bitrate_down=100000000 /* Bitrate downstream*/
    miniupnpd_notify_interval=30 /* Notify interval */
    miniupnpd_min_port_int=1024 /* MIN PORT internal */
    miniupnpd_max_port_int=65535 /* MAX PORT internal */
    miniupnpd_min_port_ext=1024 /* MIN PORT external */
    miniupnpd_max_port_ext=65535 /* MAX PORT external */
