Acting as UPnP client to open ports on another router.

Mon Apr 01, 2013 2:38 am

Hey I'm very new to RouterOS, and I'm wondering if its possible, via scripting, to open a port on another router using UPnP, ie, act as a UPnP client.

Anyone in here knows if this is straight-forward.. or is it possible at all ?

uPnP is protocol with packet exchange to establish nat rules. i would not attempt to create/recreate it via scripting. Easier would be to run some guest as metarouter and use already made program to manipulate upnp.

I have LTE USB modem, Huawei E3372 which is acting like a router. IT appears as LTE interface (on interface list), and is reachable at IP Automatic DHCP client for that interface is assigned with IP with GW
Outgoing traffic is OK, this device is acting as NAT router, and works fine. I need to access the Mikrotik router from mobile network side. I have static IP on my SIM card, but this LTE USB modem is completely closed from that side.
Opening with browser the IP brings me to a very poor menu. There is no option to change LAN parameters, and in security tab, there is only option to enable UPnP. How can I simulate on my Mikrotik to act as UPnP client, and to open ports on this USB LTE modem for remote access, for example for port 22 (SSH) or 8291 (WinBox) ?
Any idea ?
