Hello tuxfamily,

First of all great work !
Since i am a newbie in c++ and therefore learned much in a small period of time i am trying to create dynamically through my app a port forwarding so my app which has UDP and TCP connections can send and recieve finally messages via internet through a router at specific port.

On my searches around the net i droped on your miniupnp which as far as i read around seems well promising and you do well cause with windows libraries port forwarding seems like trying to open a wall with your bare fingers.

So to get strait to the point, i downloaded your latest minipnpc.tar and compiled the solution for MS VS and the upnpc-static.exe runs ok as first sight on my system but i would like to know how and what to import from your libraries and headers into my UDP and TCP application and get started using your miniupnp to make two things :
1. finally open a desired port on my router and close it whenever i like it or find the appropiate port on my router to communicate from and with via internet
2. send and recieve UDP or TCP messages into this port via internet

These are my basic kick starts to check this and congruts you but i dont know what to implement on my c++ app from your libraries and headers yet.

Could you kinldy point me according to my needs ?

well if you compiled for MSVC you should have noticed it is producing a library.
See upnpc.c to see how to use the library.

Code:

devlist = upnpDiscover(2000, multicastif, minissdpdpath,
                                localport, ipv6, ttl, &error);

i = UPNP_GetValidIGD(devlist, &urls, &data, lanaddr, sizeof(lanaddr));

UPNP_AddPortMapping(urls.controlURL, data.first.servicetype,
               eport, iport, iaddr, description,
               proto, 0, leaseDuration);


see documentation of each function in miniupnpc.h / upnpcommands.h
