Just a thought, but it would be neat if Mushclient could use upnp to open the port for the chat feature. I know it's not that hard for most people to add a port forward in their router, but why not utilize the common technology to make it even easier?

Upnp? Unplug n' Pray?

Also from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Upnp

Quote:

Most notably, routers and firewalls running the UPnP IGD protocol are vulnerable to attack since the framers of the IGD implementation omitted a standard authentication method.

Which of course means that if you have an XBox on your network, you have to render yourself vulnerable to use Windows Media support for it, since it uses Upnp to function. lol

Yeah. It has a serious issue, and I haven't heard a lot from MS about how they intend to "fix" it, unlike half the other security holes they have in the OS...
