UPnP is used to replace manual port forwarding. Some gaming box (XBOX, PS3) will need UPnP feature to connect to their respective server. Enabling it in OpenWRT Backfire is relatively easy.

1. Install UPnP package
Go to System –> Software and find upnp. Install these 2 packages¬†(luci-app-upnp & miniupnpd)

or from your shell
[email protected]# opkg install miniupnpd luci-app-upnp
[email protected]# /etc/init.d/miniupnpd start

 

2. Check your UPnP configuration
Go to Service –> UPNP

You can check UpnP status from the status page.
