Short and simple question, can we have back miniupnp please!
Why were a remove of the package justified with a “security” reason?
If someone didn’t installed it because of “security reasons”, what will a complete refuse of the package gain for a safety me?
If you not need it, just don’t install it, thats all for your “security”.
From a gamer’s point of view and multiple Gaming-Console user, there is no possibility to play with multiple consoles on the same time.
How should i tell different consoles to use different ports for the same game and game services?
One of the devices will ever give an error or will have restricted or limited access to the game services because of used and blocked ports.
I can not edit the gamefiles on a gaming-console and therefore i can’t change the used ports.
Plain and simple, it is not possible anymore to use Ipfire!
Is this the way you want it? No Gamers welcome? Because of “security”?
What if someone has outgoing Firewall behavior allowed and a malware connection that uses a STUN or any other UDP hole punching?
Did you ever uses skype or teamviewer behind a firewall? Because of the security you have to block and ban everything then?
You have to change your thoughts over upnp, if you don’t see it througt your PC-Glasses and possible maleware infect etc. or simply not intended use it.
It is not possible to install maleware on consoles, so there will be no reason to not use upnp for such devices.
This devices have it’s own firewall, in it’s own cosmos and many mechanics on board to penetrate every consumer router. But if you connect a second console, than will be the fun be started. I really wish you 2 boys with gaming consoles and one can disconnect the other by simply turning on the console.
Must i really change the distribution for my firewall/router to a different one?
That would be a real shame, i like ipfire, but our ways diverge then, because of different security understanding.
