UPnP support for Microsoft Remote Assistance

Post by theWebalyst » 09 Oct 2011, 18:01

Playing with Microsoft Remote Assistance (on Windows 7) I was directed to a test page which checked routers support. My B3 passed everything except UPnP.

Here's the test page:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/using/ ... fault.mspx

I understand B3 has some UPnP support for media playing but don't know enough about this or UPnP to understand what is and isn't supported, whether I could extend this to pass the Microsoft test or for other purposes etc.

Is there documentation on what B3 does/doesn't provide with regard to UPnP?

Thanks

Mark

The question is why would you want UPnP
In my opinion it has been a big mistake making this protocol and then also implementing it.
Every proces can now create holes in your firewall.

Agreed. The first thing I do when I get a new router is to disable UPnP. Not that this helps the OP much :roll:
