Re: Turn off uPNP

"Weak parenting! Kids (can) learn really quickly that wants satisfaction carries a cost."

And many CAN'T. Seen it FIRSTHAND, so I'm speaking from experience. Far too often, it's the children that trigger divorce...or worse.

"As yet not come across a game (Xbox One) that has required me to turn on uPnP on the WAN interface. Suspect if we do come across one, the Xbox will be relocated to it's own VLan."

And if you don't know how to do that and have no one to turn to? Not all of us are geeks or know geeks.
