Enabling UPNP for a static IP Adress: Is it possible?

Question

Zakey

Hello,

So here is my situation: I'm running a windows machine connected through an Android mobile hotspot and I'm attempting to play some games online.

The issue with online gaming is it requires an active UPNP and/or some forwarded ports so the NAT Type switches from Strict to Moderate/Open.

I have requested a port forwarding on a static IP address but I notice my NAT type is still unchanged.

My questions: Is enabling UPNP possible through your service? Are there any extra steps I need to make in order to make sure my port forwarding is taken into account?

Thank you and have a great day.

Hi Zakey,

We do not support UPNP on our network but opening the ports should help, are you sure you all ports and TCP/UDP where required?

Regards
