    Hi,

    Just asking if there is any place in internet where i can download (for free, and of course legaly) a UPnP SDK for C++, because i want to make a program which could do port fowarding under Windows98, (not only in Windows XP)....i know that there is a UPnP API SDK for Windows XP, but i found in some websites that Windows XP's UPnP API doesnt works very well...also i know that Window's UPnP feature is just available in Me/XP.....Also, i found some tools that actually can open ports (behind an UPnP router) under Windows 9x/2000/Me/XP, without using the Windows UPnP API....the problem is that i want my program to have a kind of mechanism that could interact with the router...so far..i found almost not too much information about how to do it...(without using the Window's XP UPnP API)...

    Best Regards,

    Manuel Ambulo

    Sorry Manuel that I can't help. I assume you have done a Google search and this has come up blank?

    Did you try this:

    http://www.upnp.org/

    There was a lot of problems with upnp and FS2004. FSINN explicitly tried to use it for peer to peer multiplayer and gave up and in SB it crashed FS2004. Also enabling the discover service made the find session very hard.

    Yep, i found that website..too but when i went to the SDKs section seems like the SDK for UPnP, is not available for download, or something like that...:confused: .....there was listed some "vendors", which for me means like...the UPnP SDK (for C++) were not for..free...(or something like that)...it is actually very confusing as there is a few information about that topic in internet...

    I went to the FSINN's website, and saw that they had an UPnP system that is not based in Window's XP's UPnP system and that it was compatible with previous version of windows..which was very interesting..but until now i just find references about window XP's UPnP API...


    Yes, i had been reading some forums posts, and looks like they are having a lot of troubles with it...

    Best Regards, :coffee:

    Don't know if upnp has a lot of users. GRC scared a lot of people with the upnp and pray article also I believe that MS has the service in off state. Anyway, I believe that FSINN is using a server to overcome NAT problems. Maybe, since upnp is a security threat could explain the SDK finding difficulty.

    Personally I don't use upnp but instead I use triggered forwarding however control that could be complicated even in Linux based firmware I don't know how to do it. Maybe it's a possibility.
