What rules? You mean turn off upnp?

I would assume that you remove the config file (or the part about upnp) and then reprovision your gateway

Re: uPnP in my usg

Hi. Via upnp a couple of rules have been added. They cannot be edited (which makes sense...) but also there is no delete option.
So I wonder how I can remove such rules..

Disabling upnp is an option, but sounds more like the last and ultimate resort.

Well, you get one half of it - they can't be edited because they are automatic.  That's also why they can't be deleted.  I've not seen any implementation of UPNP that let you edit individual rules.  That's kind of the point of automatic stuff like this.


Which is also why stuff like this is a really bad idea.  I'll use UPNP only if the ports required arn't documented, take note of what get's configured then turn it off and go manually create the rules I need. 

 

Yes, it's a bit more hassle but there is pleanty of malware out there that tries to open up stuff via UPNP - and anyone with basic knowledge of UPNP can easily manipulate it for whatever they want.  If you care about your firewall being effective it's best to skip UPNP and configure the rules yourself.  

When you receive a solution to your question/issue, don't forget to mark your thread as solved and to give kudo's to the people who have helped you out!

Thank you for the guidance, Eric.
I think to use upnp for troubleshooting only, temporarily, sounds like a good approach!

@mbrust

In the current unstable controller 5.6.3 UPnP can switched on/off in the GUI.

Man, I wish this would hurry and be released.  I've been trying to follow the directions to edit the config.properties file, and I'm pure Windows, so things are both confusing and problematic b/c of line endings.

Agree. I am running now 5.6.7 in my private environment and I am very happy with this release.
