Thread: bittorrent: why UPnp?

  1. #1
    anybody know why bittorrent added Upnp port forwarding as its feature?
    i mean i read about upnp in and this thing doesn't seem good
    comments please...

    btw, here's a question...
    i have heard lots of problems where ppl with routers complained about "unable to forward port via UPnP" error in BitTorrent.
    i dun have a router but i do have Sygate installed, i dun seem to have that kind of problem. how come?

    Please be kind to the noobs...we were once them after all

    If you have a router just port forward it and its ok.

    Upnp isnt good but its a nice idea. I think it just auto opens ports for you in your router, as you don't have a router turn it off (like I'd advise every one)

    i once tried UPnp but it really it isn't worth the risk. I'd just do a simple port forward before exposing my connection to hackers and viruses.
