uPnP?

I was browsing the settings on my Skype, and noticed something called "uPnP". It was enabled. I was just wondering what it was. Thank you. I apologize if there is another post about this. For I am new to this community.

Re: uPnP?

I can not believe thatnobody bothered replying to your question. It just goes to tell you that even Microsoft does not care to monitor these sites anymore. Perhaps we need to wait a few more months before Skype figures out that theyhave a louzy support, these tech communities do not solve issues and that unless Microsoft starts taking some serious action to support consumers they will fail, especially since they keepfailing customers who pay for subscriptions and othe Skype products like myself.

Re: uPnP?

Having just seen my router logs showing thousands of incoming connections to Skype apps on PCs on my home network through the uPnP functionality, I disabled uPnP in advanced settings for all installed Skype apps on the PCs - buy I discovered the same is happening for the Skype Samsung TV App - but cannot disable that within the TV app because advanced settings interface is not available ! How come there is no support route for Skype ???? I was actually shocked to find that Skype was opening these ports and getting incoming connections from thousands of presumably Skype sytsems without actually making the user aware of it happening.
