MiniUPnP: UPnP Internet Gateway Device.
« on: December 16, 2009, 03:37:48 pm »
UPnP IGN would help for Xbox or PC Gaming from behind the firewall.  MiniUPnP can provide this functionality if integrated into the LinuxMCE firewall.  I am not in a position to preform this, but I thought someone might take an interest.

I dont understand...you can already setup your ps3 or xbox from behind the lmce firewall. Why would we need this? What additional functions would it provide?
Those people who tell you not to take chances, they are all missing what life's all about.

Certain games utilize the UPnP functionality to dynamically open and close ports on the firewall for gaming.  Example, Call of duty modern warfare 2.  These games may work to a certain extent under the existing implementation.  However, some game servers that would normally be accessible through UPnP and the ability to hosting Coop games will not be.
