UPNP Strange issue



  • Hi,

    I have a strange issue with UPNP. Basically I have wireless clients that are connected remotely over a wireless bridged link, they have a single static NAT'ed IP that I i give them for their gaming system, I also have this static IP listed in UPNP Allow rules as follows: allow 1024-65535 192.168.253.29 1024-65535 .... this allows the game system to work great and gives them NAT 2 which they are happy with. The issue that I have is this: say the wireless link drops for 20 secs or 2 hours, when the client tries to reconnect to the gaming network it now goes to NAT 3, but if I stop UPNP and start it again, the client is back to NAT 2. (restarting it does not fix it, it must be stopped and then started) I have looked in the log and do not see anything that would explain what is going on. Any help / pointers to track this down would be appreciated, its driving me nuts.

    Thnx

    Dickie
