UPnP

Universal Plug and Play in eMule's context is a way to open/forward ports on UPnP compatible routers (or modems with integrated routers). This gives a high-ID without having to open ports manually.

This feature is very useful in combination with Randomize Ports & ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) support.

It was first seen in emulEspaña by MoNKi and is available nowadays in a lot of Morph based mods.

UPnP Requirements

In order to use Universal Plug and Play, there are several requirements:

  1. The operation system has to support it and the functionality has to be activated.
  2. The router has to support it and the option has to be activated.
  3. If a firewall is installed, it has to be set to allow UPnP traffic.
  4. The used eMule Mod has to have UPnP support and the option has to be activated.

Note: To find and fix problems with UPnP use the UPnP Test Program from the See also section.
