UPnP daemon Problem

Postby torvalds » Mon Jul 17, 2006 11:20 pm

Hi,
Dear first of all use the troubleshooter of live messenger and check where it stucks. I'm feeling that it is UPnP problem microsoft has big chulla uknow so try to install UPnPd to your linux box here is the link and try the instruction given there. Basically Microsoft's Internet Connection Service (ICS) implements the UPnP Internet Gateway Device specification (IGD) and allows UPnP aware clients, such as MSN Messenger to work properly from behind a NAT firewall.
