UPNP remapping ports every 45 minutes - v4.3.4.1

Post by hvcr »

Is this normal behavior?

I seem to remember it mapping them just once when the app started, or maybe I just never payed close attention to the logs before heh

Hi,

I should negociate the port when QBT starts indeed, so once. I encourage you to disable UPNP on your router and in QBT to proceed with the manual port mapping. UPNP is unsecure and sometime hard to troubleshoot as relying on negotiation between the APP, OS, and router.
If you never did it you can find info on this forum (Peter and me at least posted on this matter). It's really easy and permanent/trouble free

That picture shows the port remapping is done by NAT-PMP rather than UPnP, which doesn't even work on most routers. (But seems to be working on yours!)
It's also doing a double entry at the same time for TCP and UDP.

So... Changing UPnP settings on your computer and router probably won't help that.

See if you can find NAT-PMP controls...or just disable that in qBitTorrent if not needed.
