UPnP


Can any one help me out in understanding the implementation of UPnP
I am having a doubt in developing the protocol stack for the same. Are there any ready SDK's available to use the UPnP technology and develop application on it.

A device or program will automatically open up a port in your NAT router so that a service may enter. It also works for mal-ware and is a security hole. It is better to open up ports manually if you need to.

Maybe I need to clarify my answer. I just noticed on one router that the setup to manually setup port forwarding was labelled UPnP. I didn't mean to imply that you should forward ports, just that you shouldn't allow it to be done automatically.
