I know this has been opened before, and it wasn't clamored for a ton, but I might argue this is largely due to a lack of understanding on the part of most users. Unless I'm mistaken:

  • A: If I want to have optimal performance, I want a randomized port (meaning I need UPnP)
  • B: If I want to log into my transmission-remote from the vast wide world, I need a manually mapped port (no UPnP)

I feel like there are a lot of posts from people who have configured their system to go for choice A, but then can't sort out why their Remote GUI won't load (or cli for that matter).

I understand UPnP is a nightmare so perhaps there's just no possible way, but it was done SO well elsewhere it would be a shame not to give it a go in this one last area.
