More sophisticated UPNP support
« on: January 18, 2008, 04:50:29 PM »

I'd like to have amule check the state of the port forwardings via UPNP automatically from time to time.
If the forwardings are gone amule should (re)create them again.
The forwardings are currently only set via UPNP when amule is starting.

For me this would be nice, because my current router software forgets all forwardings which have been created by UPNP, when it is rebootet. So the amule gets a low ID. And I have to restart amule because I have no possiblitiy in amule to force the UPNP things that happen when amule is started.

No way. UPNP is not supposed to work like this. Consider if two or more programs will start to do that and will have conflicting port.

Well, that's a problem regardless, as any application started after a router reboot (manually, or requerying as suggested above) can also get a still-in-use port.

So, an automated UPNP update is  breaking the design of UPNP.
What about manual triggering the generation of the port forwardings via UPNP? (Small button in the preference tab near the other UPNP stuff called "Force restart of the UPNP module".)
Would that be against the rules?

Manual restart is OK
