How do I enable UPnP in my SBG6900-AC?
UPnP™ (Universal Plug and Play) is a set of protocols that allows a PC to automatically discover other UPnP devices (anything from an Internet gateway device to a light switch), retrieve an XML description of the device and its services, control the device, and subscribe to real-time event notification.

PCs using UPnP can retrieve the Gateway's WAN IP address, and automatically create NAT port maps.  This means that applications that support UPnP, and are used with UPnP enabled ARRIS Gateway, will not need application layer gateway support on the ARRIS Gateway to work through NAT.  This is an ideal setup if the applications or services require UPnP.  This document describes how to enable UPnP.
