What is UPnP?
UPnP allows a device or service to automatically configure the needed port settings on the NAT required to communicate properly with other devices and servers. Without UPnP, port forwarding rules will have to be set on the router manually, which becomes tedious if you need rules for multiple devices and/or services.
UPnP is commonly used help ensure an unrestricted NAT, which is needed for most multiplayer games.
How do I enable UPnP?
If you are running Plume in bridge mode and have a separate router, you can usually find the UPnP setting in the router's, Firewall or NAT settings. If Plume is operating in router mode, follow the instructions below to turn on UPnP in the Plume app
- From the home screen, open the main menu.
