The upnpd.service is too buggy and ugly to use, I can not understand the reason of its implementation.

Here is an elegant one:

Happy Hacking!

In the build() function of the PKGBUILD change:


i.e. add an escaped space after the +=

After having a few problems trying to build this.

Firstly, I couldn't validate the upnpd.conf:
Validating source files with sha256sums...[
linuxigd-1.0.tar.gz ... Passed
igd-iptables-arch.patch ... Passed
igd-install-destdir.patch ... Passed
Makefile.patch ... Passed
upnpd.conf ... /startdir/upnpd.conf: Permission denied

I had to change the permissions on that file to 0666 to be able to validate the sha256, which is really strange.

Finally, the build doesn't work:
cc1: error: invalid --param value '4-D_GNU_SOURCE'
cc1: error: invalid --param value '4-D_GNU_SOURCE'
cc1: error: invalid --param value '4-D_GNU_SOURCE'
cc1: error: invalid --param value '4-D_GNU_SOURCE'
make: *** [main.o] Error 1
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make: *** [pmlist.o] Error 1
cc1: error: invalid --param value '4-D_GNU_SOURCE'

Just as a heads-up, this package will need updating for the /usr/bin move. The daemon currently resides in /usr/sbin.

@Noread: It looks like upnpd is starting but failing afterwards. My guess would be that you have not configured the multicast route on your internal interface. The netcfg profile was responsible for doing that and you will have to arrange a route if you use another means.

Neil, can you detail out what you're doing with your system to have this conflict? Why would a password be required, ultimately, to run this?

Anonymous comment on 2013-01-06 22:02

There is a problem with:

and starting the daemon after boot with it prompting for a password on the console. This won't be desirable on a headless system.

Simplifying the above to just:

fixes this problem and will suit pretty-much any usage scenario.

Thanks for picking this package up and maintaining it.

Re. my upnpd.service contribution
1) Good move on using the upnpd.conf file to set interfaces. You can probably remove the comment about changing the interface names in ExecStart.
2) I have replaced netcfg.service with in the After= and Requires= declarations

Updated to use systemd

I should correct point 2) of my previous post. pidof will not be in base when sysvinit-tools is removed.

Anonymous comment on 2012-11-14 18:55

I use the following upnpd.service and I should justify two features of it:

1) The multicast route is configured by the internal network interface netcfg profile. This is because netcfg has builtin logic to manage routes and it is a sensible place to do it.

2) StartExecPost looks ugly. Yes it does but it only uses functionality from base. The existing initscript uses pidof which is not in base.

upnpd.service follows:

# This service relies on a netcfg profile that adds a multicast route to the internal interface e.g.:
# ...
# IP=static
# ROUTES=(' via')
# ...
# Adjust the interface names in ExecStart below to match your external and internal interfaces.

ExecStart=/usr/sbin/upnpd eth0 eth1
ExecStartPost=/bin/sh -c "echo -n $(ps -ax |grep -m 1 /usr/sbin/upnpd |awk '{ print $1 }') > /run/"

Disowning: I am no longer using Arch Linux.

jimmyxu commented on 2012-11-04 04:28

Please add a systemd service file, thanks.

Hi, I took ownership of this package, and I implemented the below comments except for cvs. Are the cvs comments still valid? If so then please give me a patch and I will implement it.

heftig commented on 2011-02-17 20:38

Had to do this in order to get it to build:
sed -i '1i#include <stdio.h>' gatedevice.c pmlist.c
sed -i '1i#include <string.h>' main.c pmlist.c

Your tarball has some issues. Binaries are usually frowned upon. Such as:
Try to find sources for the binaries instead of embedding them. Besides, what is the point to tarballing already compressed files? Please fix this.

I marked it as out of date because of changes made in cvs (that propably should be backported as ability to actually insert forward rule at beginning of chain is very useful):

- Renamed the insert_forward_rules option to create_forward_rules to
better reflect what it actually does.
- Added the forward_rules_append to do what people thought
insert_forward_rules did.
