Ok is it just me... I turned off whs v1 remote functions and then put vail on the network. UPnP worked fine and testing went on. Then I turned off vail, unplugged the cat6 from the box and rebooted my entire network and now WHS v1 will not work with Upnp I had to hard port forward.

And yes I even rebooted the modem and router... Am I nutz. umm dont post a response for that =)

I have never been able to get UPNP to work on my router... have tried for about 2 years now. Like you I have had to hard port forward. I will be watching this thread in hopes of figuring out how to get UPNP to work on my V1 box.

Call me old school, but I have never believed in uPnP, for security reasons. What I do is forward a port range on the router e.g. 30000-30999 for a PC, then on the application side, set custom ports in that range. I do need to remember what range I set for each PC, but other than that, I never need to go back into the router to map ports.
