Configure UPnP port forwarding

Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) is a network protocol that allows compliant devices to automatically set port forwarding rules for themselves. By default, UPnP port forwarding is set to Off.

To configure UPnP port forwarding:

  1. Sign in to Fiber using the email and password you use for your Fiber account.

  2. Select Network at the top-left corner. (If you don’t see it, click the navigation menu to display the selection.)

  3. Select Advanced; then click Ports.

The Ports tab displays a list of the current port service mappings, and lets you enable or disable UPnP port forwarding.

To enable or disable UPnP port forwarding:

  1. Set UPnP port forwarding to On to allow UPnP devices on your Fiber network to set their own port forwarding rules. Set it to Off to prevent UPnP devices from setting up port forwarding.

  2. Click Apply to save your changes.

After you set up port forwarding on one or more devices, those devices appear in the list, along with the ports, protocol, and service to which each is mapped. The summary includes port forwarding rules that were set manually and by UPnP devices.

If you disable UPnP port forwarding, the Network Box stops forwarding incoming requests to ports for which UPnP port forwarding rules are in effect. If you later re-enable port forwarding, your UPnP devices must set up new port forwarding rules.
