uPnP in Instant OS?

I know uPnP is a feature that is really only on consumer grade devices, and not typically on enterprise devices. But I'm using a RAP-109 as a router & AP and have a Plex Media Server that talks externally on port 32400 for remote access to content. Plex recommends enabling uPnP, of course. Currently I'm unable to reach the server externally. I have the RAP on the latest firmware (6.4.2xxxxxx). Anyone know how I could make this work?


Also, I can't figure out how to open up port 5900 or do a forward for remote VNC access either. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Friend,


I'm not sure whether this works or not but you can have a try,


Aruba supports   DLNA ( Digital Living Network Alliance ) which works on uPnP in order to work with DLNA we should enable AirGroup.


Enable Airgroup and see whether it is working for you or not.


Please feel free for any further query on this :)

The dynamic port forwarding piece of uPnP is not supported.

I already had the AirGroup and DLNA enabled. It works fine inside the LAN. Just not remotely through the net. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Well, that's a bummer. Since it's not rolling ports, and I just need static 32400 working, are there any workarounds you can think of?

For port forwarding I found an article here and added a rule to my external policy (I'm forwarding tcp 2170):


any alias localip tcp 2170 dst-nat ip 2170
