Like I said, it really needs some UI. In the interim however, there is
software available that can help you manage your UPnP port forwarding
(e.g. http://codelaide.com/blog/products/lighthouse ) and running:
SsdpListener wanIpConnectionServices anyOne getPortMappings
with a running listener (started by the CobaltMaster or start with
SsdpListener restart) should return an ordered collection of ordered
collections. Each sub collection is a port mapping entry for the UPnP
IGD in the order specified in the docs. It works on my routers at home
(linksys wrt54g and gs with the g using custom firmware; and a cheap
router I use as a spare) and Mark M. was successful in integration
testing with his netgear. I expect that we'll have some odd problems
with some hardware, we'll hammer them out as we get to them.
The current policies for UPnP port forwarding try to make the external
port the same as the internal port as some routers only support that
configuration. So if you take the postcard xml and replace the IP
address with the external address, it should be useable. The external
address can be found in the running CobaltDispatcher in the instance var
externalIpAddress, assuming the forwarding setup was successful.
Otherwise it should be nil.
