The UPnP is an acronym standing for “Universal Plug and Play.”
”Universal Plug and Play” is a function to make devices on a network easy to connect with each other, which is defined by the Universal Plug and Play Forum.

This function plays the following roles:

  • Detection of devices on a network by UPnP.
  • Support of a request for port mapping issued by a device inside the LAN.
  • Notification of an IP address on the WAN side to a device inside the LAN.
