Re: UPnP

If you are a windows MSN messenger user you may find that the file transfer and some other features don't work, though that's probably a good thing Smiley

Re: UPnP

UPnp off here, running MSN Messenger on 3 PCs on the network, never had a problem with file transfer, voice calls or anything.
Go with the flow, turn it off, you don't need it.
