#5954 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

Feature request - spin off Transmission's port mapper into a separate application

Reported by: Rockhardbud2 Owned by:

Component: Transmission Version: 2.84
Severity: Normal Keywords: port mapper portmapper


Dear Transmission, I need a good port mapper application and the Java Port Mapper (see google/sourceforge) just doesn't work for me. What does work is Transmission - transmission manages to get the connections working even when Java Port Mapper does not. That is why I would like to request that transmission spin off a port mapping application from its main application. Something that I could run from the terminal by typing "TransmissionPortMapper? -privateport 5000 -publicport 5000 -protocol TCP", and that would be more reliable than other port mapping applications.

It looks like transmission uses libminiupnpc5 for it's UPnP port mapping. That library can be found here: and might already continue a client cli that would serve your needs.

Yeah, this won't happen as part of Transmission. If someone's willing to make a separate program, we're using miniupnpc, natpmp, and may use pcp (see #5415) in the future.
