Re: PnP

They also get used by IoT devices, with or without your permission; and miscreants like to target commonly-forwarded ports to pwn the programs within to use as springboards into your LAN. It's a no-win situation; the only practical solution to this involves more rigamarole than the average user is willing to put up. And that's not getting started with households behind a CGN which introduces a second firewall layer that smothers most UPnP setups.
