As long as you're running trusted apps, you should be fine with uPnP.
..but most will generally have this problem as a result of whatever crapware they install, so yea, it can be a risk...imagine someone remote who gains access to your lan because of this.
and this just belongs in network nook.
Ok. So if said crapware gets exec-uted, it might exploit the UPnP setting?
Question, can I turn on UPnP just to initially configure the device, then turn it off? Or would It be better to open the ports on my own?
And oh yea, sorry, network nook. I'll try to properly classify.
Can an ADMIN please move this topic to the "Network Nook?"
