I'm one of the developers on the BitTorrent client "Transmission", and I'm wanting to get rid of our UPNP code and use miniupnp as a drop-in replacement. All Transmission really UPNP for is port forwarding, and Discover -> GetValidIGD -> AddPortMapping API is dead simple. Smile

However, Apple Airport routers use Nat-PMP for portmapping, and since most of Transmission's users on Macs, this is a problem. I see that there's some new Nat-PMP support on the daemon end, so I was wondering, are there plans to add Port Mapping Nat-PMP API calls on the client end as well?

I'm wondering if adding NAT-PMP support to the miniupnpc code is a good idea because some of the logic of NAT-PMP is different and won't fit in a UPnP IGD API. For instance, when a port mapping is requested, a different public port can be provided by the nat-pmp device.
Anyway, there are plans to release a NAT-PMP client library, included with miniupnpc or not. Smile
I'll keep you updated.

Glad to hear it. The development tree of Transmission is using miniupnp already, and I'm looking forward to nat-pmp support either in miniupnp or in a sister library. Thanks for all your work! Smile

Since the author of Transmission's nat-pmp code is AWOL and the bug reports are mounting up, this is very welcome news indeed. Smile

This snapshot has been folded into Transmission's trunk now.
