Just for the record, Windows 98, 98SE and ME do support UPnP if you install the Windows XP Internet Connection Sharing client by running Windows XP's Network Setup Wizard (netsetup.exe) on them.

hmm I dunno even in 2004 this would have been a welcome addition to mirc I personally don't see what the problem is in implementing it into mirc.

I would imagine Khaled has bigger issues to deal with, such as unicode support (which still needs plenty of holes patched), the scripting features, etc.. Considering DCC works for the most part already, it's not really such a critical feature, but you're right, this shouldn't be too hard given his attention-- and I'm sure he will look at it sometime in the future.

On a sidenote, if you think the implementation would be easy, perhaps writing a DLL for it would be just as easy, until its supported officially. I don't really see much more difficulty in writing it as a DLL. You could potentially even write the implementation and donate the code, as people have done in the past, which might help Khaled get it into mIRC faster.

Unicode is now in version 7.0, but no update on uPNP support.

Unfortunately I've no idea how uPNP works and no demand for it myself at the moment.

However, I'm sure implementing uPNP support will help many users with DCC issues, so I am still pushing for this feature.

Does anyone know how uPNP works enough to write a script or dll?

Thanks.

Khaled can only do "one" thing at a time. Unicode has been added, yes, but the public beta is still just a beta. By the number of bug reports since the initial public beta release, the development of these features is clearly not done. Until he is done with this release, it's unlikely that he will tackle uPNP.

I'm sure he will plan a new round of features to add when this beta is finalized. However, it's generally unlike Khaled to "update" on whether or not a feature is in the works. So it will happen when it happens. It's likely he's noted this suggestion, that's probably the best you'll get.

Actually someone should submit this as a bug... cuz it is now a bug w/ ipv6 support....

I double that. Virtually all internet apps which are relying on listening sockets have UPnP support these days. NAT traversal is a critical issue for IRC client.

UPnP NATs are commonly deployed on home and small office networks, but not Internet Service Provider or Enterprise environments.

Ah so he has; or of course he has. smile

So, this means we're one step closer to native support right? wink

Well, it should be pointed out that the script was written 5 years ago, so we're just as close now as we were when this thread was started (roughly).

I also made a upnp script that doesn't use COM & will work on (as far as i can tell) all windows versions from 98 on.
Instead of COM I use sockets to talk directly to the router.
