UPnP does not work with miniupnpd 2.2.0-4


Recommended Posts

My router has miniupnpd 2.2.0-4.

When I start BitComet 1.77 I can see in the router UI that the relevant UPnP redirects are added.

However, when I check the new firewall rules on the router, I see the source is set to, when it should be


I was able to find the cause of the problem.

If you look at the request:

POST /ctl/IPConn HTTP/1.1
Accept: */*
CONTENT-TYPE: text/xml;charset="utf-8"
SOAPACTION: "urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:WANIPConnection:1#AddPortMapping"
Content-Length: 628
Cache-Control: no-cache

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" s:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"><s:Body><u:AddPortMapping xmlns:u="urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:WANIPConnection:1"><NewRemoteHost> </NewRemoteHost><NewExternalPort>6790</NewExternalPort><NewProtocol>TCP</NewProtocol><NewInternalPort>6790</NewInternalPort><NewInternalClient></NewInternalClient><NewEnabled>1</NewEnabled><NewPortMappingDescription>BitComet TCP</NewPortMappingDescription><NewLeaseDuration>0</NewLeaseDuration></u:AddPortMapping></s:Body></s:Envelope>


you can see that the NewRemoteHost tag contains a single space. I believe that this tag should be empty.

That is what I see in http://upnp.org/specs/gw/UPnP-gw-WANIPConnection-v2-Service.pdf


2.3.17 RemoteHost This variable represents the source of inbound IP packets. This variable can contain a host name or a standard IPv4 address representation. This state variable MUST be formatted as:

• a domain name of a network host like it is defined in [RFC 1035],

• or as a set of four decimal digit groups separated by "." as defined in [RFC 3986],

• or an empty string


Could you please fix this issue?
