Question: how to turn on Universal Plug and Play (UPnP)

bought a new surveillance camera network dvr and directions say you should turn on UPNP on your router before turning on UPNP on dvr. I've looked on the Airport Extreme setup by opening the Airport>APUtil (utility) >base station > manual setup > internet... i do not see anything that shows UPNP... I am assuming this is allready turned on since my other 2 computers are connected to this router. Is it?

Apple's routers do not use UPnP.


They do offer a similar type of feature, which is called NAT-PMP, or NAT Port Mapping Protocol


Open AirPort Utility - Click Manual Setup

Click the Internet icon

Click the NAT tab below the icons

Insure that there is a check mark next to Enable NAT Port Mapping Protocol


Click the Configure Port Mappings button if you need to specify specific ports to use and set them up on the next window that appears

What version of the AirPort utility are you refering to here? I have both the latest and 5.6. On the latest version there is no "manual setup" option. Also, in version 5.6, I could not see any "NAT" tab... But I would like accomplish what you are describing. Any thoughts on this?

In version 5.6 if you don't see a NAT tab, then your AirPort must be configured as a bridge. When in bridge mode, NAT is disabled and NAT-PMP (or UPnP) wouldn't be required.

I have ver 6.3.2 of AirPort Utility. Here's how you can "Enable NAT Port Mapping Protocol"


Applications > Utilities > AirPort Utility


When AirPort Utility opens, click your AirPort Extreme. A little side window will pop-up. Click the "Edit" button at the bottom.


Click the "Network" tab. Toward the bottom, click the "Network Options..." button. Check the box for "Enable NAT Port Mapping Protocol". Hit the "Save" button on that window. Then, hit the "Update" button on the next window.


That should have you covered.
