Feature Request NAT-PMP

Tue Jan 14, 2020 6:02 am

I would like to request that NAT-PMP be added to the UPNP feature. This is a widely used feature by apple clients and also by my Homebridge for my Ring cameras. I have confirmed that it does use NAT-PMP and will not work on the Mikrotik. It works if I boot up another firewall that supports NAT-PMP.

NatPMP is a different protocol than UPNP. It works similar but is not the same. I can confirm that Mikrotik does not support NatPMP but UPNP does work. The program I am using Homebridge uses NatPMP which is a protocol used most by Apple devices. It tries to open the ports but doesn't work on Mikrotik. If i boot up my PFSense firewall as an example which supports NatPMP the ports get opened.

Here is an article on Wikipedia explaining NatPMP
